Knowing what happens to branches

We're pretty comfortable with CVS here.  We have several projects, but a few
are large and sometimes there can be 2 or 3 of us working on different parts
at the same time.  We each make our own branch from a production tag, do our
work, and merge the changes back to another branch (or HEAD, depending.)

In theory, anyway.

We've had a few cases, however, of branches _not_ being merged back onto the
mainline for various reasons.  What I would like if to be able to know:

1) Why a branch was made
2) The last date a change was made to any file on that branch
3) What branch this branch was merged into
4) When #3 happened

I know CVS has some logging capabilities, but I didn't see what I was
looking for (with the possible exception of being able to deduce #2)

How can I do this?
