After successfully checking out the source tree following the instructions on
http://anoncvs.r-project.org/ I can run cvs update commands successfully but not
cvs diff.

bjg|debian> cvs update
cvs server: Updating .
cvs server: Updating afm
bjg|debian> cvs diff -r R-1-7-0 README 
cvs [server aborted]: cannot write /cvs/CVSROOT/val-tags: Permission denied

Thanks for making CVS available (very useful -- I wiped out some work several
times when using Rsync!)
