We have a CVS repository containing many modules and I need to make a

You're on the right track. Make the modules read only, and add the
"Lockdir=somedir" setting to the config file, where "somedir" is a path
to a writable directory. See Appendix C.11 in the manual for more details.

IIRC, you can also achieve the effect desired with the cvs_acls script from the contrib directory.

Perhaps look at using both for a second line of defense. :)
