Sorry, it looks like I misread your question. No I don't know of any tool to do this. Actually, I'm not sure it is even possible on the command line..."who has what checked out" isn't a relevant question in CVS. Using the various hooks for script running on cvs commands, you might be able to put together your own tool (if there is any hook run on a checkout even); a script that writes the user to a file on checkouts and removes the name from from the file on releases and then a web page that includes this info might be a way to do it.

But, again I don't see how it would be useful. When I work on projects, I check out the module and check in any changes I make. When I'm done I usually just leave the module in my sandbox directory ignoring it untill I need to do something with it again, at which point I just issue a 'cvs up' command to get current. Right now I've got probably 15 modules checked out, but have only touched about 6 of them in the last 6 months (and am currently only actively working with 2 of them).

I use ViewCVS as well but there is no option to see a log of checked out files is there? If there is can you let me know where?

It's what we use and we love it.

Is there a web add-on that we can use to see who has checked out a given module?

I know you can use the command line but I have some users that would like to see who has checked out a given module, and I do not want to give them shell access to the box.
