 * You may distribute under the terms of the GNU General Public License as
 * specified in the README file that comes with the CVS 1.4 kit.
 * This file holds (most of) the configuration tweaks that can be made to
 * customize CVS for your site.  CVS comes configured for a typical SunOS 4.x
 * environment.  The comments for each configurable item are intended to be
 * self-explanatory.  All #defines are tested first to see if an over-riding
 * option was specified on the "make" command line.
 * If special libraries are needed, you will have to edit the Makefile.in file
 * or the configure script directly.  Sorry.

 * For portability and heterogeneity reasons, CVS is shipped by
 * default using my own text-file version of the ndbm database library
 * in the src/myndbm.c file.  If you want better performance and are
 * not concerned about heterogeneous hosts accessing your modules
 * file, turn this option off.
#ifndef MY_NDBM
#define	MY_NDBM

 * The "patch" program to run when using the CVS server and accepting
 * patches across the network.  Specify a full pathname if your site
 * wants to use a particular patch.
#define PATCH_PROGRAM	"patch"

/* Directory used for storing temporary files, if not overridden by
   environment variables or the -T global option.  There should be little
   need to change this (-T is a better mechanism if you need to use a
   different directory for temporary files).  */
#define	TMPDIR_DFLT	"/tmp"

 * The default editor to use, if one does not specify the "-e" option
 * to cvs, or does not have an EDITOR environment variable.  I set
 * this to just "vi", and use the shell to find where "vi" actually
 * is.  This allows sites with /usr/bin/vi or /usr/ucb/vi to work
 * equally well (assuming that your PATH is reasonable).
#define	EDITOR_DFLT	"e"

 * The default umask to use when creating or otherwise setting file or
 * directory permissions in the repository.  Must be a value in the
 * range of 0 through 0777.  For example, a value of 002 allows group
 * rwx access and world rx access; a value of 007 allows group rwx
 * access but no world access.  This value is overridden by the value
 * of the CVSUMASK environment variable, which is interpreted as an
 * octal number.
#ifndef UMASK_DFLT
#define	UMASK_DFLT	002

 * The cvs admin command is restricted to the members of the group
 * CVS_ADMIN_GROUP.  If this group does not exist, all users are
 * allowed to run cvs admin.  To disable the cvs admin for all users,
 * create an empty group CVS_ADMIN_GROUP.  To disable access control
 * for cvs admin, comment out the define below.
#define CVS_ADMIN_GROUP "cvsadmin"

 * The Repository file holds the path to the directory within the
 * source repository that contains the RCS ,v files for each CVS
 * working directory.  This path is either a full-path or a path
 * relative to CVSROOT.
 * The only advantage that I can see to having a relative path is that
 * one can change the physical location of the master source
 * repository, change one's CVSROOT environment variable, and CVS will
 * work without problems.  I recommend using full-paths.
/* #define	RELATIVE_REPOS	 */

 * When committing or importing files, you must enter a log message.
 * Normally, you can do this either via the -m flag on the command
 * line or an editor will be started for you.  If you like to use
 * logging templates (the rcsinfo file within the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT
 * directory), you might want to force people to use the editor even
 * if they specify a message with -m.  Enabling FORCE_USE_EDITOR will
 * cause the -m message to be appended to the temp file when the
 * editor is started.
/* #define 	FORCE_USE_EDITOR */

 * When locking the repository, some sites like to remove locks and
 * assume the program that created them went away if the lock has
 * existed for a long time.  This used to be the default for previous
 * versions of CVS.  CVS now attempts to be much more robust, so lock
 * files should not be left around by mistake. The new behaviour will
 * never remove old locks (they must now be removed by hand).
 * Enabling CVS_FUDGELOCKS will cause CVS to remove locks that are
 * older than CVSLCKAGE seconds.
 * Use of this option is NOT recommended.
/* #define CVS_FUDGELOCKS */

 * When committing a permanent change, CVS and RCS make a log entry of
 * who committed the change.  If you are committing the change logged
 * in as "root" (not under "su" or other root-priv giving program),
 * CVS/RCS cannot determine who is actually making the change.
 * As such, by default, CVS disallows changes to be committed by users
 * logged in as "root".  You can disable this option by commenting out
 * the lines below.

/* Define this to enable the SETXID support.  The way to use this is
   to create a group with no users in it (except perhaps cvs
   administrators), set the cvs executable to setgid that group, chown
   all the repository files to that group, and change all directory
   permissions in the repository to 770.  The last person to modify a
   file will own it, but as long as directory permissions are set
   right that won't matter.  You'll need a system which inherits file
   groups from the parent directory (WARNING: using the wrong kind of
   system (I think Solaris 2.4 is the wrong kind, for example) will
   create a security hole!  You will receive no warning other than the
   fact that files in the working directory are owned by the group
   which cvs is setgid to).

   One security hole which has been reported is that setgid is not
   turned off when the editor is invoked--most editors provide a way
   to execute a shell, or the user can specify an editor (this one is
   large enough to drive a truck through).  Don't assume that the
   holes described here are the only ones; I don't know how carefully
   SETXID has been inspected for security holes.  */
/* #define SETXID_SUPPORT */

 * Should we build the password-authenticating client?  Whether to
 * include the password-authenticating _server_, on the other hand, is
 * set in config.h.

 * If you are working with a large remote repository and a 'cvs
 * checkout' is swamping your network and memory, define these to
 * enable flow control.  You will end up with even less probability of
 * a consistent checkout (see Concurrency in cvs.texinfo), but CVS
 * doesn't try to guarantee that anyway.  The master server process
 * will monitor how far it is getting behind, if it reaches the high
 * water mark, it will signal the child process to stop generating
 * data when convenient (ie: no locks are held, currently at the
 * beginning of a new directory).  Once the buffer has drained
 * sufficiently to reach the low water mark, it will be signalled to
 * start again.  You may override the default hi/low watermarks here
 * too.

 * Externs that are included in libc, but are used frequently enough
 * to warrant defining here.
