You can't.

CVS only tracks the changes to the contents of text files.  Directories
are only used to hold files in their place.  If there are no files in a
directory then CVS doesn't know anything about the directory.

Please DO NOT EVER send HTML, rich text, or otherwise stylized e-mail,
especially not to me or to any public mailing list.  Not all mail
readers will recognize such formats, and their added volume is generally
a total waste of bandwidth, storage, and processing power for everyone.
HTML in particular is a potential security threat and many firewalls and
some mailing lists filter it entirely -- especially since CERT and
Microsoft have jointly anounced a very major flaw in the HTML rendering
engine used in all Microsoft products (in versions still widely in use,
and which isn't even properly fixed in the most recent releases).

For more information see, for instance, the following articles:
