Restricting permission on some of the repository modules

Restricting permission on some of the repository modules


We have a CVS repository with many modules and branches. I want to make a few of these modules read-only while other modules in the repository should still have read/write access.
The modules which i want to change to read-only have branches. I want to maintain read-write on these branches but make read only the trunk of these modules.
Is this possible to do and how?

thank you

RE: Restricting permission on some of the repository modules

I have looked into using cvs_acls, but our repository is big (46GB) and won't be able to use 'ALL' in the commitinfo file.
And apparently repository pattern does not work ( ).
Any other method of doing this? We are using pserver, and passwd file has 'cvs' as run-time userId, and don't want to change that.
