Multi-user working directories

We're using CVS client/server with :pserver:.

We are about to turn our product source over to support.  Up until now, a single
person has been maintaining the "official release" working file set.  After the
transfer, we would like to have multiple people doing updates and various other
CVS functions with these "official release" set of working files.

The problem is that when the working files are checked out, the user's id is put
into all the CVS/Root files from the CVSROOT environment variable.  When someone
else comes along, the new user's .cvspass file no longer matches the users id in
the CVS/Root files and the operation is stopped due to an invalid password.

Anyone have a way around this?

I suppose we could make a common .cvspass file and create a .cvsrc file to set
CVSPASS for this common password file.  But I'm hoping there is a better way.

Is there a way to override the user id in CVS/Root?

Anyone run into this situation before?
