I use sourceforge for my CVS repository.  It Just Works, and lots of
people have accounts on it so it's easy to give people access.

The only slight downer os that I have yet to find a way to only give
people write access to particular subdirs.  I have decided not to care,
as I can always revert any mistakes other people make, or restore the
repository from my backups.

  I don't do .INI, .BAT, or .SYS files.  I don't assign apps to files.
  I don't configure peripherals or networks before using them. I have
  a computer to do all that. I have a Macintosh, not a hobby.
