I suppose another way around it would be to run
the cvs executable on your server as a set-gid
process. I don't recommend it unless you know what
you are doing.

Could you also put a chgrp command in a commitinfo script to change the group of files being committed? I'm not sure that will work, though.

How about making a commitinfo script that starts a process in the background that sleeps a short time and then does a chgrp on all on all the files in the repository directory involved in the commit? That should do it and will probably be better than a crontab job.
