Hi Larry:

This brings me to a question, I am planning to migrate the cvs repository to another machine. I am using the same password file from the old one in the new one.

Does it mean since the name of the machine before and after are same, it is transparent to the user. Or do they have to logout and log in.

Logging in has no effect on what root CVS uses.  All logging in does is
validate the supplied password and then remember it in ~/.cvspass so you
don't have to type it in again.
