- Subject: file permissions
I have installed CVS with cygwin under windows2k operation system. It is
working properly. Further more,I want to specify the files permissions for
different group of users. I have read the cvs manualfrom
and I have used the command "chmod" to specify a read only access rights to
the repository for the user named "cvsuser", but I found that when I log in
as "cvsuser" and tried to access the repository, I can check out file and
commit file properly, except that there is a warning which said that "can
not write to history file". What I want is that there should be a totally
fail if without write permission, but not only a warning there.
By the way, can I make the restriction to prevent some user from reading
some files from the repository? It seems that I can not take away the read
permission from users by using command "chmod". It seems that all the
directories and files should be readable at least for all the users.
Can anyone give some help? thanks alot!
