Forget pserver, use SSH with individual system accounts.  Then you can
use normal permissions to control access to directories within the
repository.  People need read access to a directory in order to do
anything at all with it and write access to a directory to modify the
files in it (commit changes, add tags, etc.).  If you plan to allow
read-only users, you'll need to set LockDir= in CVSROOT/config to a
world-writable directory where CVS can put the lock files.
