How to organize control access to source code ?

Hello,
How can we organize development team with code source control policy,
that limit access to some portion of code ?

Sincerely,

Ahmed Boukhari

The specifics largely depend on the system(s) you're working with
but, basically (sic), you need to read up on filesystem level
permissions.

Thanks for your response,
But I want to know if there is a process or best practices, to give
not the access to all of the project. in other words, must every
developer work on the entire copy of the project locally ?

Or to work just on his module and manage a process of integration, and
if there is any Agile practices for this problem.

The question may be of interest, but I'm afraid I don't understand how
it relates to Python ???

You probably want to split the project up into several individual
projects (as perceived from a technical perspective), which can then
be protected using whichever mechanisms are available. Not only will
it be easier to introduce various access controls - for example, you
might have a bunch of different CVS modules (or similar things) which
are then easier to administer and apply access controls to - but
you'll also reduce the undesirable side-effects that come with a
monolithic project with lots of people hacking on different stuff that
inadvertently breaks other stuff.
Or to work just on his module and manage a process of integration, and
if there is any Agile practices for this problem.
I'm not sure what the overlap is between "agile development" and
restrictive access controls, but another approach might be to use a
totally distributed version control system and then manage the
restrictions when merging changes. You'd probably remain "agile"
whilst exercising the control you require.

It sounds like a reasonable application of multiple Mercurial
repositories. Mercurial is a distributed source control system
written in Python. Does that count?

Hmmm, let's see... The reference implementation of Python is written in
C. Should we then post Python-related questions on c.l.c ?-)
