If you are using WinCVS then you are actually using CVSNT (it comes bundled
with WinCVS).  I dont know which version of WinCVS / CVSNT you are using but
recent versions all have native inbuilt support for branch ACL's.

The documentation on this is incomplete, however "cvs -H chacl" on the
"Admin->command line" from WinCVS should give you most of the information
you require.

You will need to be running CVSNT on your server and client - downloads for
Linux, Solaris, HPUX, Windows and Mac OS X (and source code) are available
