Well, the first thing I usually do is look at the command-line options.

% cvs --help log
Usage: cvs log [-lRhtNb] [-r[revisions]] [-d dates] [-s states]
    [-w[logins]] [files...]
        -l      Local directory only, no recursion.
        -R      Only print name of RCS file.
        -h      Only print header.
        -t      Only print header and descriptive text.
        -N      Do not list tags.
        -S      Do not print name/header if no revisions selected.
        -b      Only list revisions on the default branch.
        -r[revisions]   A comma-separated list of revisions to print:
           rev1:rev2   Between rev1 and rev2, including rev1 and rev2.
           rev1::rev2  Between rev1 and rev2, excluding rev1.
           rev:        rev and following revisions on the same branch.
           rev::       After rev on the same branch.
           :rev        rev and previous revisions on the same branch.
           ::rev       rev and previous revisions on the same branch.
           rev         Just rev.
           branch      All revisions on the branch.
           branch.     The last revision on the branch.
        -d dates        A semicolon-separated list of dates
                        (D1<D2 for range, D for latest before).
        -s states       Only list revisions with specified states.
        -w[logins]      Only list revisions checked in by specified logins.
(Specify the --help global option for a list of other help options)

Hey, look at that... -d lets you filter by date, -r lets you filter by
branch, and -s lets you filter by state (i.e. "dead").

Easy, wasn't it? :=)
