I use cvs(pserver). I have bad set privileges on my shared project. I don't know how I have to set for right function.
I need to write only users from file writers.

My TestProject has privileges drwxrwxrwx (it is certain bad, but I don't know how to set.).
I have my writers in file of same filename.

Could you help me,please. (I am not great in linux.)

When using pserver, the actual CVS files themselves need to be writable from the pserver's userid - which is usually defined in (x)inetd.conf. Then, for individual users, they have to have their own rights within CVS. Their CVS user identities may be defined to CVS or using their system login ID's, if they have one. But that part's complicated enough I'd have to RTFM (Cedarqvist) to be able to explain in detail.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
