I bet you can do it in just a few lines of shell or perl.

if [ $1 != admin ]
    echo "You cahnt doodat"
    exit 1

Then just add it to the taginfo file.

DEFAULT /path/to/taginfo/hook/tagallower ${USER}

Ok, so now you're shaming me into it ;-)

Well now, I'll make it conditional for release tags - which all begin with "DO178", ... hmmm you're right, that shouldn't be too hard ...

I'll go rtfm, throw something together, and report back ...

Course, I shoulda said this has to work with WinCVS ...
