Question on cvs acl options

From: Abhilash Koneri
Subject: Question on cvs acl options
Date: Sun, 9 Oct 2005 20:19:08 -0500


We are using cvs on a fairly large site with pserver option. We create cvs users that are not system users and manage the module access using a number of system users. However, this makes access management somewhat difficult with growing number of projects and users. We have tried to use cvs_acl script, but we found that it uses the user name derived from the environment and not from the connection string passed through the :pserver option. Is there an option (compile time or runtime) that can be used to pass the user name in the pserver  connection string to the pre-commit hooks ? 

We did modify the cvs source code of 1.11.20 to obtain the functionality needed. (See the diff patch below). But we would like to know if there is a standard option already available for this. If not, would it be possible to include the same in the future builds as a compile time or runtime option?
