  No, for example I don't. I read the Changelog, but please don't
assume that people will read the cvs-commit-list

  I am also among the people who dislike the idea of ACLs on the
CVS base. In my experience it is just a serious pain (I work
in an enviroment with a badly integrated AFS, and ACL are just a
real PITA, mostly by lack of proper integration with the rest of
the system).
  For now there is ACL rules, described in the modules HACKING files,
but those are not system enforced. I would far prefer to have this
left to the responsibility of the people accessing the CVS base.
