Hi Matt/Pete,

I actually have the same problem that Pete is describing. I am only starting 
CVS, but can't seem to get the permissions right. I have been following the CVS 
and, and I have the same problem in both 
cases (hence,
I am obviously doing something wrorng ...): when I checkout a project that I 
commited to the repository, everything is read-only, and I can't make any 

I have created a group "cvs", and added my username "jaime" to that group. This 
is a snippet
of /etc/group


The repository entry, in /usr/local, looks as follows:

drwxrwxr-x   4 root     cvs          4096 Oct 22 10:28 cvsrepos

and inside:

drwxrwxr-x   3 root     cvs          4096 Oct 19 12:43 CVSROOT

then I import my first project, helloWorld, so from the top of the helloWorld 
tree I run (as user jaime)

[jaime]$ cvs import -m "my first cvs project" helloWorld_cvs jaime Rev1_0

It runs faultlessly, and the result in the repository (/usr/local/cvsrepos) is:
drwxrwxr-x   3 root     cvs          4096 Oct 19 12:43 CVSROOT
drwxrwxr-x   2 jaime    jaime        4096 Oct 22 10:34 helloWorld_cvs

and inside helloWorld_cvs, I have the following:

-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime         566 Oct 22 10:28 Make.files,v
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime        1024 Oct 22 10:28 Make.header,v
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime        2305 Oct 22 10:28 Makefile,v
-r-xr-xr-x   1 jaime    jaime     1412574 Oct 22 10:28 helloWorld,v
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime         510 Oct 22 10:28,v
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime       16793 Oct 22 10:28 helloWorld.proj,v
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime        2154 Oct 22 10:28 helloWorldProject.jcc,v

which is ALL read-only! it seems to me that there should be write permissions 
here, but there aren't.
When I later checkout the project in another directory (with write permissions 
for user jaime), with

[jaime]$ cvs checkout hellowWorld_cvs

the following directory is created:
drwxrwxr-x   3 jaime    jaime        4096 Oct 22 10:34 helloWorld_cvs

with the following files inside

drwxrwxr-x   2 jaime    jaime        4096 Oct 22 10:34 CVS
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime         169 Oct 22 10:28 Make.files
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime         628 Oct 22 10:28 Make.header
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime        1902 Oct 22 10:28 Makefile
-r-xr-xr-x   1 jaime    jaime     1407008 Oct 22 10:28 helloWorld
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime         113 Oct 22 10:28
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime       16384 Oct 22 10:28 helloWorld.proj
-r--r--r--   1 jaime    jaime        1758 Oct 22 10:28 helloWorldProject.jcc

All, unfortunately obviously, read-only :-( 

Can anybody see what is wrong?

Thanks very much in advance.
