"commit" requires write access to the repository

I'm the project admin for a project on Souceforge:

I'm the only admin and there are no developers yet

I've written to the CVS several times, but had a mis-hap and deleted the source files locally. No problem I thought - just check them out, and I'll have copies.

So I did:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/chessdb co -P chessdb

That was fine - all files came down okay. But if I change one locally, I'm unable to commit it back:

$ cvs commit
cvs [server aborted]: "commit" requires write access to the repository

I tried this:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/chessdb commit

but the same problem.

CVS % cat Root

$ cat Reposittory

(and so on)

I have ssh keys set up, so can log in without a password
