cvs-pserver is a simple wrapper script that allows easier control of the CVS pserver. It is configured using the file /etc/cvs-pserver.conf. The options that can be set in that file are:
This should contain a colon-separated list of all the CVS repositories you wish to use.
Is the location of the temporary space that you wish cvs to use for certain operations like import. If unset, CVS will fall back to $TMPDIR then /tmp.
These may be used to set process limits on cvs resource usage if desired.
Is the location of an (optional) external password file, used to override the CVSROOT/passwd file for authentication if set.
