Hi there,

Is it possible to specify access levels for cvs users. IE can I restrict access
to certain sections of  cvs respository for a project?

thanks,

John

    You do this by using appropriate Unix groups and permissions on the various directories.

    if you need more access restrictions, you better get rid of  CVS, it might end in a nightmare, unfortunatelly.
    The CVS docs (Cederquist?) have a detailed, painfull, description how to setup users and groups on unix (as Tintin suggested).
    It's way to much to post here ...

    unix groups permission is a good enough solution.
