Thanks for re-posting.
There are others in this forum who regularly use ViewVC so I'll leave them to answer your question.
However about 6 months ago the CVSNT project "forked" and a new project started called "EVS" (enterprise versioning system). The goal of this is to create an open platform for CM/SCM - it has integrated web based functions such as browsing the repository. Since it's integrated into the EVS engine it DOES respect the ACLs.
A new beta of evs is due soon ( the current one doesn't have the web functions, but I have seen them demonstrated in Madrid about 5 weeks ago ). Long term EVS will be your solution I think.
Short term I'll leave it for the ViewVC users to answer.

Subject: [cvsnt] viewvc repecting cvsnt's ACLs
Is there anyone out there who knows how to solve this problem:
I set up security on my ubuntu cvs server using cvsnt's acls. But of
course (or at least: of course to me...) viewvc (or viewcvs) doesn't care
about my ACLs. Anyone any ideas about how to solve this?
I read something about an apache module authenticating against
/etc/shadow. But then I would need to set up everywhere .htaccess files
based on the fileatr.xml files of cvsnt. So it must be possible to do
this with a script ruinning via a cron job. But it seems like a big
headache. Maybe one of you knows about a more elegant solution?
