I have released a new version of the CVS ACL patch that I maintain to
fix a rather stupid security bug.  It's on my web page
( and it is the "perm13" version.  If\
you use this patch, upgrading is highly recommended.

If you don't know what this patch does, it adds the following to CVS:

* Per-directory access control lists.
* Remote administration (including letting users change their own
* pserver over SSL (called sserver) that encrypts all information
 between the server and client.

Thanks to the person that caught this and told me about it.
