Well, I certainly may have missed a trick there. Ownership of $CVSROOT and
its subdirs was 'cvsmgr', group was 'cvsusers', xinetd set the
'cvspserver' "user = cvsuser", the intended cvs login users were defined
in '$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd' like: "joedoe:<pw_hash>", and all those users
were members of the 'cvsusers' group. Maybe I could have left all that
unchanged and set "user = cvsmgr" for xinetd. In fact I'll probably try
that. I just prefer not empowering any remote activity as 'root'. Call me
superstitious.
