We use viewcvs too, and it's very good. We have some lovely
integration work done so that CVS commit messages are added into our
bugzilla, and then we auto-linkify from bugzilla to viewcvs so that
the commit messages then contain links so you can view the changes
that were committed. It's lovely...
