I attempted to limit access to parts of my module by using group permissions. The problem is than when the checkout reaches a directory it can't read, it fails right away and doesn't go on to other directories.

You need to use LockDir= in your CVSROOT/config file to put the lock
files somewhere other than in the repository:

OK I have the checkout problem solved. Now the problem is that checkouts of certain files are failing because "Permission denied". These files are owned by a group that the user is a member of, but not the default group. Is there any way to get cvs to be smart about this and change its own gid?
