So I still don't know whey I'm getting:

cvs [commit aborted]: could not open lock file `/usr/local/cvsroot/JPL069/PL069/FPGA/PL069_V01/,arinc_interface.vhd,': Permission denied

Because you do not have permission to create that file.  Why that is is
between you and your OS, CVS doesn't have anything to do with it.

Larry, you are right as usual. Somehow the directory permission got changed to drwxr-s---, disallowing write access for group members.

This command, provided during a previous call for help, fixed it all.

   : all the group members should be able to write to it
   find $CVSROOT -type d -exec chmod g+rwxs {} \;

Thanks again, Larry and Todd, for your help, and for the reminder to always think clearly and trust the error messages.
