       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

              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 system user:
           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.
