cvsd.spec  - Chroot wrapper to run `cvs pserver' more securely
Name: cvsd
Version: 1.0.3
Release: 2.el5
Group: Development/Tools
Packager: ATrpms

cvsd is a wrapper program for cvs in pserver mode. it will run 'cvs pserver'
under a special uid/gid in a chroot jail. cvsd is run as a daemon and is
controlled through a configuration file. It is relatively easy to configure
and provides tools for setting up a rootjail.

This server can be useful if you want to run a public cvs pserver. You
should however be aware of the security limitations of running a cvs
pserver. If you want any kind of authentication you should really consider
using secure shell as a secure authentication mechanism and transport.
Passwords used with cvs pserver are transmitted in plaintext.
