I executed the following thing:
find . -type f -exec sed 's/\$revision_history[^\$]*/$Log/g' {} \;

This it seems to work well, the output of the SED shows the change, but when I observe the files I do not see the change of the keywords. am I making something bad?

Off the top of my head, something like:

find -type f -exec sed -i 's/\$OriginalRCSKeyword[^\$]*/$NewRCSKeyword/g' {}

should do it. Check your changes very carefully before committing, though,
in case one of the files is binary, or otherwise happens to have a string
that matches the keyword. You'll also probably want a way to filter out
files in the CVS subdirectories - I haven't figured out how to do that with
'find' yet (if indeed it's possible).
