between branch for sure, but between main trunc and a branch it is :
if you do :
cvs log -r1.30: test.c
you could expect to get all the commit that lead to from 1.30,
cvs log just list all the commit of the file ! , for me it's a bug
It's sure that the semantic of something like :
cvs log -r1.30.2.8: test.c
is more questionable.
I propose to list all the commit from 1.30 to , I mean
the commit from the common ancestor to the upper branch...

I have take a look at log.c and I hope to finish the mods today
Do you know where to send patches ?
