Good choice.

Yes, this is  how the :pserver: starts.

for each repository to be removed from :pserver: use, remove the
- --allow-root=/path/name argument and when all of them are gone, you may
remove the entire service cvspserver entry from your xinetd.

To use :ext:, your users will need system accounts on your cvs server.
Personally, I like to allow restricted shell access that only allows the
'cvs' command and possibly the 'uptime' command to be given. This is
not a requirement.

If the user is able to run 'ssh your.cvs.server cvs server' then you
should be all set.

You may wish to use google to look for how to setup ssh and run
ssh-agent as you probably do not want to enable 'rsh' on your cvs
