Edit $CVSROOT/avail to grant the user access to selected part of the inf tree.

Process the password. Log on to www.inf.ed.ac.uk (currently skelp) and become root. Look for the user's encrypted password entry in /cvsroot/CVSROOT e.g. tail newpass

Copy the encrypted password from the newpass file to the passwd file, checking first they don't already have an entry. If the user has recently filled in the webform and their one is the last entry in the newpass file then you can use the command below to copy this to the actual passwd file - take care not to miss a chevron!

tail -1 newpass >>passwd
