If it's any consolation, you can restrict the ../CVSROOT directory
(itself) permissions to the world, even though some of the files 
in it are rwx to the world.

Subject: [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...)
