If you are using CVSHOME CVS (1.11 or 1.12) you will want to look into the 
SetACLs scripts.

CVSNT server (free/GPL) on Linux/Unix/Windows/Mac has a "cvs chacl" command for 
setting access control lists.

There was a very long discussion about whether it is "better" to perform 
development on the trunk or on the branch (and merge into Trunk) about six to 
twelve months ago on the CVSNT list.  It was very good reading and I suggest 
you have a read before making a final decision on the methodology.
