If you have rsh/ssh access to a CVS repository then you do in fact need write
access just to generate diffs. It is one of the annoyances of CVS but it
doesn't really matter for Postgres where we use pserver anonymous access.

Personally I find CVS so terribly slow for large trees like Postgres that it's
essential to use rsync to maintain a local CVS repository. That makes 'cvs
diff' remarkably fast.
