In strict configuration management terms you do *not* check out in prod
Prod fixes should be made in a Prod 'mirror' and after testing and
verification (**and**  sending back into dev/test) migrated into the
'live' env.

Sounds like you'd have two groups.  One called "development", and
another called "production".

Have the RCS folder (you're using RCS folders, right?) in the
development location.  The RCS folder should be writable by the
development group, and readable by the production group.

Then make a production location where only the "production" group can
make writes to.  In the production location make a symbolic link to the
RCS folder.  Then use the checkout commands to retrieve what you need
from RCS in the production location.
