I also have a question.Maybe you have told about it but only I'm not 
understand. I want to know,via :ext:/SSH,weather a user must be and 
OS user?No matter how security the ssh is.I don't want give them

system account but still can access the CVS repository.Is ssh also 
can do so? I'm afraid it can't,because I tried but failed.
