You could alter your CVSROOT/rcsinfo to provide a log message template
with something like a 'request:' field and enforce good values via the
CVSROOT/verifymsg trigger and have your loginfo trigger send e-mail or
otherwise attach the desired information of the request found in the log
message into your defect tracking system that attached the list of
modified files to the request-id.

This would let you query your defect tracking system for entry '1234'
to obtain a list of files that were impacted on a particular date.

Another approach would be to use something like the cvs2cl package to
generate xml for all of the changes in a given release and collect the
list of files needed from the entries with log messages that reference
the interesting bugfix identifiers in a useful way to your own

        Good luck,
