Set the permissions on the repository directories so that read-only
users have read permission but not write permission.  Read/write users
should have both read and write permission.  (Note that only directory
permissions are important, not file permissions.)  You'll also have to
set LockDir= in your CVSROOT/config file to put the lock files somewhere
other than in the repository since read-only users still need to be able
to create lock files.

CVSREAD does *not* put CVS in read-only mode -- it just set the
permissions on checked out files to read-only to prevent *accidental*
