reader/writer file would be useful to you only if you use the pserver method, history file and some other files/directory may require write acess by reader so, check out the out put of the command
 cvs -d sun1.vzlu.local:/home/hajek/cvs checkout parsec
it must be showing you that fail to create lock in this directory and failed to write history file, give write acess to those files/directory and leave others read only - the main source tree.

  For me this worked recently. As I am also a newbie I may be wrong at some points would like to have input on above method from senior members.

I am a newbie to CVS and can't figure out how to solve my problem:
I have my own CVS repository on our company server (/home/hajek/cvs).
I would like to provide a read-only access to it to
other users (that are not members of me or my group). However, if they
want to download a project with

cvs -d sun1.vzlu.local:/home/hajek/cvs checkout parsec

cvs fails because it requires write-access to the directories to create
I also created the "readers" and "writers" files in the CVSROOT
but it still doesn't work. Is there any way to get this right?
Many thanks in advance,
