CVS Import Permissions

Hi All,

I am having some confusion regarding the way CVS works with permissions
under unix when importing a new project. Currently, when I import a
I get this sort of permissions on the project directory:

drwxr-x---  2 jim   cvs   512 Jan 27 12:31 test_proj

Notice that the group (cvs) is not granted write access. Is this the way
it's supposed to work? Do I have to use chmod to grant write access to
group every time I do an import? Or is my CVS not configured correctly?
If I
don't grant write access to the group on that directory, every check in
fails with a "could not open lock file
`/usr/local/cvs/test_proj/,test.txt,': Permission denied". I tried
the LockDir in the config file to a world-writable directory, but this
doesn't seem to solve the problem when trying to check-in. Thank you!
