Hi Andrew,

I was recently in Nashville (in spring) helping a local company (pharma
biz) with their configuration management requirements and processes.
Too many breakfasts at Midtown Noshville (or maybe dinners at Royal
Thai) saw off any chance of getting into shape for summer ...

Generally as a rule of thumb CVS operates on HEAD (or the branch of the
sandbox).  You can force it instead using:

 cvs up -A -C -D "2012-07-05 13:41"

Implementing and using CVS well takes some work - I recommend you get a
good book on the subject from Amazon or your favourite technical books
seller.  I
had a hand in writing 'All About CVS' or there is the ever popular
'Essential CVS' or many many others.
