[Q] Read-Only Access with SSH

I've been looking through the archives on this and understand that it can be accomplished through the use of permissions.

So, I've got the standard 'cvsuser' group to which I have added user accounts who are supposed to have read/write access to the repository.

Now, based on what I've read, I need to then use the 'other' permissions to control what other people can do with the CVS repository. However, it would appear that I need to make directories of the modules writable by 'other's so a lockfile can be created. Also, it would appear that either all(?) or some(?) of the files in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/ need to be writable by 'other's as well.

Allowing these things to be writable by the world, makes me nervous and I am wondering if there is another, secure, method that I can use or if I a simply missing something here.

Comments? Thoughts?

(This might make a good FAQ question/answer...there doesn't seem to be one on this topic yet...)
