       cvsd-passwd - generate password entries for repositories


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


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


       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.

              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.


       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.
