dev2 modified. And this is for everything in that repository.

Get Bonsai ( ) and set it up,
have it build its database from the cvs history. Then use it to query
everything dev1 did in the specified time frame.  When it's showing you
a list of commits that includes everything you want to rollback and
nothing that you don't, hit the magic link at the top entitled "show the
commands to back out these changes" save the resulting text to a .bat or
.sh file, execute it.... Viola!

Of course, if there are overlapping commits, you're probably going to
have to do those by hand, but this should get a bunch of it done....
