I am in the process of releasing version 0.7.0, but ran into a snag. 
When I do a cvs tag command, I get the following ...

$ cvs tag release_0_7_0
cvs tag: Tagging .
T .cvsignore
T ChangeLog
[... lots of tagging output elided ...]
cvs tag: Tagging test/mock/gems/gems/sources-0.0.1
cvs tag: Tagging test/mock/gems/gems/sources-0.0.1/lib
T test/mock/gems/gems/sources-0.0.1/lib/sources.rb
cvs tag: Tagging test/mock/gems/specifications
cvs [tag aborted]: could not open lock file 
Permission denied

Changes to the sources-0.0.1.gemspec cannot be committed either.  Does 
someone have this file locked?  Or is our CVS repository screwed?
