    Note the --allow-root option. Your CVS server will only allow checkouts
    from that repository.

    Please, if you have to use Google Groups, make sure you quote the original

    and stupid. Without a proper quote from the original, people who get just
    a single line from you won't be able to know what you are really talking
    about.

    For instance, seeing the above one-liner, someone who hasn't watched the
    entire thread can't tell what "it" refers to. The following post of mine
    contains the part that Google Groups didn't quote for you:

    You can make the remote repository access of CVS to work fine by making
    sure that /backups/testcvs is included in the set of --allow-root options
    the CVS server starts up with. Multiple options can be passed if
    necessary:

    # inetd.conf line (wrapped for USENET), make sure it's all on one line
    # and the continuation "\" character is removed.
    cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/cvs cvs \
    --allow-root /storages/test_cvs --allow-root /backups/testcvs pserver

    All the details of the options you can use and their significance are
    described in the reference manual of CVS too.

    Regards,
    Giorgos

    Yes. And before you think that Giorgos is being picky and/or presenting
    a not widely held view, let me just say he's absolutely correct. It's
    impossible to know what or who you're answering or asking questions of
    if all we have is one line and no context.
