cvsd-passwd - generate password entries for repositories
cvsd-passwd REPOS [+|-]NAME...
cvsd-passwd adds, updates or deletes users from repository passwd files
for use with cvsd.
REPOS Specify the directory in which the repository is located. This
argument can be the top of the repository, the CVSROOT directory
or even the passwd file in the CVSROOT directory.
Add or update the user to the CVSROOT/passwd file. If the user
does not exist a password for the user is asked and the user is
added for use with cvsd. If the user already exists a password
for is asked and the password field is modified.
The :SUSER part can be user to change or set mapping to a system
user. If you do not specify anything, a reasonable default is
used based upon your cvsd configuration. If you don’t want to
map the user to any specified system user you can specify an
empty SUSER and use ‘USER:’.
-USER Remove the user from the CVSROOT/passwd file.
Add an anoncvs user to access the given repository:
cvsd-passwd /var/lib/cvsd/myrepos +anoncvs
If the user already exists, change the password.
Remove a user from the repository passwd list:
cvsd-passwd /var/lib/cvsd/myrepos -foo
Add a user and specify that cvs should remap this user to the joe
cvsd-passwd /var/lib/cvsd/myrepos joecvs:joe
Note that the user joe should be known in the system passwd file and
that cvsd should be run as root or user joe for this to work.
