Update a sandbox to the head of that branch and do:

        cvs diff -D 2007-08-25

If you apply a tag when you merge, you don't need a sandbox on the
branch; you can just diff between that tag and the branch tag.  There's
no need for a unique tag for each merge, either, you can use a single
tag and just move it each time you merge.  And using a tag is more
reliable than using dates since changes on that day could have been
committed either before or after the merge occurred.
