This varies by operating system. The 'man group' command should help you
find documentation you need. It could be as simple as adding a line to
the /etc/group file, running the groupadd command or modifying an NIS
or LDAP database somewhere else.

The same command that specifies how to create a group will probably give
you hints as to how to add members to it.

You should probably consult with your system administrator to look at
the vendor documentation to ensure you do not do something wrong.

You will want to look at the chgrp command (which may have a '-R' option
to impact all files and directories on the command line recursively,
otherwise you will probably end up using the find command with the -exec
option being a chgrp command).

You may also wish to make all directories set-gid for some operating
systems (eg, something like 'find $CVSROOT -type d -exec chmod+s {} \;')

        Good luck,
