Authors and CVS permissions


Mathis had some problems with permissions and CVS. He also wanted to see the authors of documents while browsing his library.

CVS permissions * Saw that the files under /usr/local/cvsroot were having their group changed whenever they were edited or changed, so looked up how to force the cvsusers group to be used always. * Found "a web page":http://www.sics.se/~hamfors/cvs.html with some details. Essentially needed to 'chmod g+s' on the directories. * Set permissions back and briefly tested. Needs more testing. Document Authors * Added a column to the output when browsing documents in the virtual library, for listing the author(s) of the documents. * The information for this is pulled from the catalog as part of the catalog metadata, so added "creator" to the metadata schema in the catalog. * Tried to reindex the catalog to fill out the metadata, but ran into the unicode error.
