[...perl program fragment elided...]

cvs only cares that your program return a zero or a non-zero return code.
A non-zero return code will abort the commit and a zero return code will
allow it to continue. How you choose to make that decision is up to you.

I suggest you debug the program outside of the context of cvs to see
if it works as you expect.

In future e-mail to info-cvs, you may wish to include a few more
'important' bits of information:

  * The version of cvs you are using.
  * The version of the host operating system you are using
    for both the client and (if known) the server.
  * If you compiled your own cvs from sources, what configure
    arguments did you use. If not, what distirbution of cvs
    are you using?
  * The relevant configuration information for example
    the line of the commitinfo file that is calling your program
    might help to determine if all the arguments make sense.

BTW: Have you looked in the documentation in or cvs.texinfo
with the item "cannot commit files as 'root'" ?

Look at the example contrib/cvs_acls and the contrib/commit_prep scripts
in the cvs source distribution.

Look at the on-line manual and FAQ in to search for
terms like 'module' and 'branch' also, look in the info-cvs mail
archives at a reasonable
search string that might get you started is 'branch access'

        Good luck,
