pserver ?  Why not just :local:/usr/local/CVS ?  No xinetd, no login,
no passwords to set up...

When you put a cvs server on your colocation box I recommend :ext:
with CVS_RSH=ssh and public key authentication.  I assume
you already have the ssh part set up ?  Othwerwise how do you
reach your colocated machine ?

The usual directory permissions are 770 + setgid to a group to which
all the developers belong.  The setgid bit (on Linux) is to make sure
any subdirectories inherit the group of their parents.
