   Thanx everyone for the help. Currently we have given only read
permission for the testing team. Although they cannot make any
modification in the repository, one thing that worried me is the
availability of CVS directories when they checkout a version. I would
like to know if the presence of CVS directory might cause any issues
in future(like being able to modify the repository in some way)

I will also look into contrib directory and triggers to see if I can
do more interesting things using CVS.
