It would be nice if someone could help me with this.

I am trying to restrict access to the modules inside the repository using
the group/other mode permissions.The CVS Server is on a Linux machine and
the client is TortoiseCVS/WinCVS. We have a pserver authentication set up.
All the users log in with their own username/passwd but use a common system
username. At present the umask value of the default user is 0002. I am
trying to make this 0007. I tried using the CVSUMASK environment variable by
declaring it in the profile file of the system username. This didnt work. I
also tried with umask command. Even this failed. I always have my modules
and the directories inside it created with 775 mode. Initially I thought I
was erring with the way I was setting umask but then I logged in as the
system username and created directories/files, which worked fine.

Is there something that I am missing, or is it that CVSUMASK nor umask works
in this scenario.
