Nobody has write permissions to /home/cvs-extra:
$ cd /home/cvs-extra
CVSROOT extra cvsprep
$ touch test
touch: cannot touch `test': Permission denied
$ ls -ld .
dr-xr-sr-x 4 root cvs-extra 4096 2008-04-01 05:30 .
users ftp-arch ftp-extra cvs-arch cvs-extra abs-git
$ cd ..
$ ls -ld cvs-*
drwxrwsr-x 4 root cvs-arch 4096 2008-02-10 01:49 cvs-arch
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2005-04-03 16:37 cvs-community
