Problems with permissions on files and directories

I am using cvs pserver and am seeing some permissions problems on files and
directories *in* the repository.

Sometimes we see directories with permissions such as rwxrwxr-x, thus people
who are members of the others group cannot merge changes with their own
changes, we get a "read lock failed - giving up"

Sometimes I see files with the following permissions:

r--r--rw- Makefile,v

I am not sure whether this is a problem or not with files.

How do I ensure that directories are given rwxrwxrwx permissions with
specific owner and groups and files are given r--r--r-- permissions with
specific owner and groups?

John Scott.
