cvsd-passwd - generate password entries for repositories
adds, updates or deletes users from repository passwd files
for use with cvsd.
- 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
- 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.
