SYNOPSIS

cvsadmin [options] [action] [parameters]

DESCRIPTION

cvsadmin is a program to administer users of a CVS repository easily. You can use it to administer a local or a remote repository (see the -c option). There can be at most one option per invocation, since there are no way to distinguish between action name and parameters).

Options modify general how cvsadmin works generally.
c This tells cvsadmin to use cvs(1) to checkout the files. This allows you to administer a remote repository, to use SSH, etc. (just like your normal CVS setup works)
C This tells cvsadmin to accept pre-encrypted hashes instead of plain-text passwords when changing password, adding users, etc. This is good for administrators that don’t want to see their users’ passwords.
h Get some help about cvsadmin usage
d <repository>
  Tells cvsadmin what CVS repository location to use. By default, it uses $CVSROOT, and if it’s not set, defaults to :local:/usr/local/cvsroot
v Shows cvsadmin ’s version
Actions can be any of :

add     - Add users, parameters are user names
list    - List users, no parameters
del     - Delete users, parameters are user names
email - Change users’ email addresses, parameters are user names
rename  - Rename users, parameters are pairs of old/new usernames
misc - Do misc change on a user’s account, parameters are user names
sys - Change users’ system username, parameters are usernames
pass - Change users’ passwords, parameters are usernames
