Adding users to Docs publishing CVS ACLs
In addition to needing the
cvsfedora group, a user needs to be in the appropriate CVS access control list (ACL) for docs.fedoraproject.org.
For these examples, the username
you is your username when you are acting as administrator and adding someone to the ACL. The username
them is the FAS username of the person or persons you are adding to the ACLs.
First, make sure you know where you are:
[you@localhost CVSROOT]$ pwd /home/you/Documents/projects/fedora-docs-cvs/CVSROOT [you@localhost CVSROOT]$ cat CVS/Root :ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/fedora [you@localhost CVSROOT]$ cat CVS/Repository CVSROOT
Second, confirm that you are updated; doing both of these commands is overkill, but CVS is underkill, so you have to make up for it's problems:
[you@localhost CVSROOT]$ cvs up -d cvs update: Updating . [you@localhost CVSROOT]$ ls acls checkoutlist config cvswrappers loginfo notify syncmail verifymsg avail commitinfo CVS editinfo modules rcsinfo taginfo [you@localhost CVSROOT]$ cvs status avail =================================================================== File: avail Status: Up-to-date Working revision: 1.62 Repository revision: 1.62 /cvs/fedora/CVSROOT/avail,v Sticky Tag: (none) Sticky Date: (none) Sticky Options: (none)
Third, with your
avail file updated and verified, edit it to add the user(s) to the proper module.
[you@localhost CVSROOT]$ vi avail
The lines are self-evident, and the file is well commented. In essence, each sub-directory us available for no one to edit until a specific line is created adding that directory. For example, the directory
web is the top-level, so having permissions to read-write to that directory recurses down to all sub-directories. We sometimes add a line when it gets too long to read in ~70 characters width.
In this example, the user
them had permissions to a set of sub-directories, and now is so busy and useful, access to the entire collection of documents is being added:
[you@localhost CVSROOT]$ cvs diff -u avail Index: avail =================================================================== RCS file: /cvs/fedora/CVSROOT/avail,v retrieving revision 1.62 diff -u -r1.62 avail --- avail 2 Jun 2009 23:19:54 -0000 1.62 +++ avail 11 Jun 2009 02:37:48 -0000 @@ -23,7 +23,7 @@ unavail | | web avail | notting,sopwith,gdk,katzj,you,bjensen,mmcgrath,jjmcd | web avail | havill,hp,nman64,ivazquez,jkeating,glezos,pfrields,duffy,ricky,couf,tw2113 | web -avail | sparks,jjmcd,ke4qqq | web +avail | sparks,jjmcd,ke4qqq,them | web avail | sarahs,aalam,ccheng,noriko | web/html/docs/translation-faq avail | sarahs,aalam,ccheng,noriko | web/html/docs/translation-guide avail | sarahs,aalam,ccheng,noriko | web/html/docs/translation-windows @@ -35,8 +35,6 @@ avail | mdious,sparks | web/html/docs/selinux-guide avail | mdious,sparks,sradvan | web/html/docs/selinux-user-guide avail | sparks,sradvan | web/html/docs/security-guide -avail | them | web/html/docs/install-guide -avail | them | web/html/docs/user-guide
Fourth, commit your changes. They take effect immediately:
[you@localhost CVSROOT]$ cvs ci -m "adding them to everything, thanks for all the hard work" avail **** Access allowed: you is in ACL for CVSROOT.
