SYNOPSIS

cvswrap [cvs options ]

DESCRIPTION

cvswrap is a program written to sit in front of cvs. It provides an administrator with fine grained access over cvs repositories.

On startup it determines the CVSROOT environment variable by way of command line options, environment or by parsing the pserver command stream. It then reads a config file cvswrap.conf(5) to determine the which wrapper to execute.

If the CVSROOT is not set or can not be determined then cvs(1) will be executed normally.

Typical usage for cvswrap is to use it to invoke a custom wrapper which may be setgid to a special group in order to enforce ACLs over cvs(1) operations.

INSTALLATION

To make this program work one should rename the installed cvs(1) binary to /usr/bin/ncvs and install cvswrap in the location where the cvs(1) binary was.

BUGS

The default install of this program is not particulary helpful. See the installation section for help.
