Hi all,

I have some shell scripts that are executed from the working directory of one of the users in our system (Call it 'user X'). The problem I am having is that, if the scripts are modified and user X updates, the execute permissions are gone.
CVSREAD is set, but I thought it would only affect write permissions.
Is there a way to prevent this behaviour, short of wrapping 'cvs update' for user X in a script that will 'chmod +x' these scripts each time an update is performed?

Thanks in advance for any insight.
