The biggest problem I can see is that CVS is our biggest limitation. 
Surely it wouldn't be too hard to add functionality into CVS which would
allow per directory r/w permissions on some kind of
user/group based authentication.

Maybe it's worthwhile investigating a better alternative?

Another solution might well be to submit each port/group of ports into
it's own module rather than the tree as a whole.

Some food for thought.
