To see a commit history, use cvs log. The output format of cvs log is
not particularly well arranged for reconstructing a commit history, but
the information is there. Karl Fogel's cvs2cl Perl script can rearrange
the contents into a ChangeLog file or XML. It will figure out what
changes were commited together, and group them together with the log
message and spit them out in reverse chronological order.

I hacked a version of it which will produce the changelog as a set of
static web pages: the history is in the index page. In each entry, you
can click on files and view the diffs, which are also generated before
hand as static web pages.
