I need a way to generate 'cvs diff' against read-only repository. To
achieve this it's enough to fix 'cvs add' so that it either doesn't
contact the repository at all, or just doesn't require write permission
to the repository to succeed.

As a response to the question, I've got a reference to the discussion
about new 'cvs add' implementation, where you, Paul, argue in favor of
new implementation of 'cvs add' to contact the repository to run some
new scripts you called add-time triggers. I then tried to tell that I'm
yet another person here who is against such a thing and tried to suggest another way of achieving your actual goal, -- checking something against
repository at add-to-working-copy time using existing commit-time

There are two proposals on the table. The first is Greg Woods' proposal to make "cvs add" be a purely local operation. The second is mine, which implements add-time triggers that require calling the server but in a way that the user can opt out of them when invoking "cvs add".

Does that meet your need?
