The slave should not have any of its permissions propagated to the master.
You should be able to turn off the 'preserve' mode so that the master will
not walk all over your slave.

See the man page for cvsup and look for the preserve keyword.

You should probably look into for more inforamtion
as does not really do anything to support CVSup. In
particular, questions and answers not covered by the file should be directed to
address@hidden (the information they need before they will
answer your questions is located in the FAQ under question 5).

        Good luck,
