The "x" mode will be set only if the ,v file in the repository has the "x" mode 
set. That is set on the first checkin to the repository. If the first checkin had an error, then go 
to the repository, find the ,v file and chmod +x.

I've read the CVS manual, it seems CVS does not care about the file access
mode. But, I have a bash script in CVS, when I check it out, the file
access mode in my local working copy is always rw-r-r. I want to change
the file access mode to rwx-rwx-rwx when I check it out. Of cause I can
change it in my local directory, but other people gets annoyed every time
to update from the cvs, they have to manually change the file access mode.
Is there any way in CVS I can check in a file with the access mode I like?
I have tried to check this file rwx-rwx-rwx from my local copy, but when I
check out, it still came as rw-r-r. Appreciate any helps.

Thank you.
