I think you might need to read the File permissions section of the manual
[1]. all the users who need write access to the repository have to have
write access to each directory in the repository. all users who need read
only access to the repository need read access to each directory in the
repository, and need write access to wherever LockDir (see CVSROOT/config
[2]) is set.

If you have not already I would suggest reading sections 2-4, 10, 11, and
appendix C of the manual[3], as
