  1. CVS passwd file

    Hi,

    What utility do I use for maintaining the CVS passwd file. 'passwd' does not
    seem to allow a file to be specified.
    Can I use htpasswd, or is there another utility, or do I have to maintain
    file using an editor, and if so what do I use to encrypt the password ?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Aaron

    I can only seem to use the systems /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files to
    maintain users and passwords for CVS. Putting a passwd file in CVSROOT does
    not seem to function.
