i have users which are primarily in 3 different groups, are secondarily
in a common group. 

When logging in they can access the cvs locally after having done a
newgrp, but that is not very practical....

all would prefer using their own platforms for devel....
unfortunately when you do a cvs operation over ssh you can't select the
group, at least i didn't found one....

thus the cvs systems accesses the repository with the primar group of
the user, yielding a lot of access rights errors....

done, as said the problem is to tell the system to use the secondary
groups of the users and not the primary ones....
