Authentication daemon for the CVS pserver method

cvsauth is a wrapper for the CVS pserver method. It lets you run multiple repositories on one CVS server without the usual risk when running pserver as root (every CVS user can gain root access). It finally removes the security risks with typical CVS pservers. However, be forewarned that Red Hat 5.0 (and older) and SuSe 5.3 (and older) *do not* work.
