Hi Nick,

I believe you will find the 'cvs log' command to be very useful.
Included for each version is the 'lines: +n -m' which is a count of the
lines that have been added and removed from the previous version of the
file. The same line has the date: and author: fields.

All that said, you may find the 'CVS Statistics Generator' does most of
what you need:

It generates some fairly nice statistics.
