Subject: Differences between revisions - ALL Files

I have spent hours trying to generate a list of all file differences
between revisions so that I can report which files were added and
which files were modified by a project team. The problem is, when CVS
sees a new directory that was added by the team it just says that it's
skipping it altogether because it's not in one of the revisions, as in
"cvs diff: ignoring /com/blah/blah(CVS/Entries Missing)". I want that
list of added files so that I don't have to hand-type the names of
dozens of new files!

I have tried the following:

cvs -nq update -r oldrev
cvs -n diff -r oldrev -r newrev
cvs -n diff -r newrev -r oldrev

...and many other combinations of arguments that didn't make any

Does anyone know of a combination that can give me a complete list of
file differences, even if one revision does not have all of the files
of another revision?
