The /usr/local/newrepos path on the cvs client command is referring to 
the CVS repository directory.

The path on the --allow-root= is the repository directory the CVS pserver 
is exposing to remote access.  Multiple --allow-root= options can be
used on the same command line in order to allow access to multiple 
repositories from the same pserver.

This is the section from the CVS documentation that discusses pserver
configuration.  I have quoted the paragraph below that describes the
--allow-root option.

  The `--allow-root' option specifies the allowable CVSROOT directory.
  Clients which attempt to use a different CVSROOT directory will not be
  allowed to connect. If there is more than one CVSROOT directory which you
  want to allow, repeat the option. (Unfortunately, many versions of inetd
  have very small limits on the number of arguments and/or the total length
  of the command. The usual solution to this problem is to have inetd run a
  shell script which then invokes CVS with the necessary arguments.)
