    Hi,

    I need a code versioning system and was considering CVS. I would like
    some feedback if you are using CVS (wincvs or tortoise etc) and if you
    are satisfied with it. One thing i havent been able to find too much
    documentation on and is one of my major concerns is permissions. If i
    install cvs can i assign access to certain files in the project to
    certain windows users. For example if my web application has page1.asp
    page2.asp and page3.asp and i would like user newbie to only access and
    modify page1.asp?

    Thanks for ure time and comments :)

    So would the windows files and folder permissions be automatically be
    used?
    If i had CVS on the server and newbie didnt have access to that file,
    when newbie logged into the server and tried to checkout a file1.asp
    which he didnot have permissions on windows to access, CVS would not
    allow him to either as it would skip that file? I thought cvs made temp
    copies of the files for checkout so wouldnt that bypass the permissions
    set on the original file/folder?
