cvsd-passwd(8)		    System Manager's Manual		cvsd-passwd(8)

NAME
       cvsd-passwd - generate password entries for repositories

SYNOPSIS
       cvsd-passwd REPOS [+|-]NAME...

DESCRIPTION
       cvsd-passwd adds, updates or deletes users from repository passwd files
       for use with cvsd.

OPTIONS
       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.

       [+]USER[:SUSER]
	      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.

EXAMPLES
       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.
