I've set up a CVS server using OpenBSD's anoncvssh-scheme.  Have a
look at their pages for how to set up anoncvs in a chroot-jail.  (The
instructions are OpenBSD-specific, but it works fine on FreeBSD, which
I run it on.  Not sure about Linux.)

Also, I made a patch against CVS 1.11.5 to incorporate the
readonlyfs-changes from OpenBSD's version of CVS.

It's at .
No guarantees, though.  (This works by simply not doing any locking,
though, and maybe that isn't what you want.)
