how to assign write permissions to CVSROOT/admin/arun folder for particular cvsuser


Hi all,
Any one help me how to assign write permission for a folder inside CVSROOT in Ubuntu OS(eg:i need to assign cvs user "arunkumarp27" to write only the /cvsroot/admin/arun not to write any other folders in CVSROOT,the same user should have only read permission to other folders in cvsroot).
Is it possible to do this, if yes what are the steps to make it possible.Kindly help me with this its urgent.

I'm sorry, if my sentence forming is worst.

Hi,

this can be done with standard unix permissions. Eg.
Code:
addgroup cvsadmin
addmod -G cvsadmin arunkumarp27
chown :cvsadmin /cvsroot/admin/arun
chmod g+w /cvsroot/admin/arun
In the above example the commands issued do the following:

- create a new group
- put the user in the new group it
- change the directory group ownership
- make the directory group writable

how to assign write permissions to CVSROOT/admin/arun folder for particular cvsuser

Hi evo2,
Thanks for you reply evo2.i have another doubt if i add another user to cvsadmin he will also get the same privileges,its correct.
But i need is, if i add "rajiv05" user to cvsadmin group he should not get write permission for this folder /cvsroot/admin/arun.
Rajiv05 should get access to write /cvsroot/project and /cvsroot/prog.

For this i need to create another new group and add rajiv05 in that new group or any other option is there by keeping rajiv05 in cvsadmin group itself and assign any other permission for those two folders.

Hi,

sorry, typo, that should be usermod, not addmod.

Opps, and you'll probably also want to used the -a flag with that. Eg
Code:
usermod -a -G cvsadmin arunkumarp27
Please check the man page to confirm.
