Hi all,

I just built cvs on my Linux box.  I set up a repository called 'fs' 
and set the owner to root and the group to 'fsdev'.  I have a list of 
users who belong to the 'fsdev' group who should be able to add, 
commit, etc... However, when I tried to add the first directory to 
the repository as user 'tvolkert', it made me owner of that directory 
(user 'tvolkert', group 'tvolkert').  That being the case, no other 
users could run a 'cvs checkout fs' because they had no permissions 
on that dir.  Here's the error msg.

cvs checkout: failed to create lock directory for 
(/usr/local/share/cvs/fs/test/#cvs.lock): Permission denied

cvs checkout: failed to obtain dir lock in repository 

cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

What am I missing???

Thanks in advance for your help,
