Any ideas what's up with this?

I've just tried it and it works for me. On sourceware, the permissions look sensible:


-rw-rw-r-- 1 jlarmour ecos 92450589 Aug 26 16:41 history

And I've just confirmed you are still in group ecos.

So either it's already been fixed or there's other weirdness. Perhaps check your CVS/Root in those directories just in case (including e.g. ssh, not pserver)?


No, I'm trying to use the pserver interface - that's what my customers need. I'm fine for my own SSH use.

It should be fixed now. It was a consequence of a different change on sourceware to remote the anoncvs user from project groups.
