Read http://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs_16.html#SEC118 for help on this.

I typically use a variation of ISO 8601 timestamp with spaces between
the time and timezone:

   cvs checkout -D "2003-04-27 07:49:43 -0800" modulename
or cvs update   -D "2003-04-27 07:49:43 -0800" modulename

Or, if you are looking at the UTC time from a 'cvs log' command, you might
want to use 

   cvs checkout -D "2003-04-27 15:49:43 UTC" modulename

I hope this helps.
