If you just want to prevent people from modifying certain files, you can
use your filesystem's read/write bits.  Just make sure that the files in
the CVSROOT module on the repository machine are chgrp'ed to a group
that only admins can be part of, and then make them group writeable.

If you're interested in:

(a) being able to stop people from doing the above
(b) being able to prevent people from adding and removing tags based on
file name, file revision and/or tag name
(c) being able to prevent people from committing on a branch
(d) being able to freeze a project
(e) being able to work around cranky repository administrators (i.e.
"all users contacting this repository via pserver are mapped to a single
user id so that the repository machine only has one system account on
it" --> this kind of policy prevents you from using regular filesystem
(f) being able to maintain access control list information in a
moderately readable format

...keep an eye on  I'll be
releasing files there by the end of the month.
