You can't do it with CVS alone.  The output of "cvs log" can be parsed and
reformatted into a better report, but doing so is not foolproof due to the
way the rlog formats its output.  (User comments can look like the syntax
RCS uses to identify versions.)

Take a look at the rinfo and lmerge programs.  They're designed to
produce automatic reports and will take you a long way to getting what
you want, but you'll have to go the last 20% to produce a list of files
and version ranges to feed to rinfo.  Both of these programs are available
