Re: Remote repository permissions best practices

In our location we have set up a unix group 'dev' with the proper
access permissions.  All users who will commit to cvs need to be part
of this group.

This does not prevent other users with different group from
committing.  There are some issues we have had where a user from group
'tst' have committed and messed up the access rights (file
permisssions in CVSROOT).  To solve this (asside from chgrp) we make
the user 'newgrp dev' before checking out.
