Just create an empty file "writers" in the CVSROOT directory of the
CVS repository:

Checkout the CVSROOT with "cvs -d :pserver:<user>@<server>:/<path> co CVSROOT" .
Change to cvsroot directory "cd CVSROOT".
Create the empty file with ":>writers" (or echo.>writers" on Windows).
Commit the changes with "cvs commit".

The "writers" file contains the list of users with write access. So
the empty list disallows write access for any user.
