You need write access $CVSROOT. You also need write access to the
history file ($CVSROOT/CVSROOT/history) to do anything.
I've set it up with all files and directories owned by group cvs and
the g+s bit set on the directories (so that group ownership is
inherited when a new file or directory is created). Each user who
needs access is added to the cvs group. This gives any user in the cvs
group permission to modify and create files.
If you need finer control over access have a look at OSSP shiela:
