CVS list revisions

Most CVS gui's like Cervisia and Tortoise have this built in.
Doing this from a terminal is a little more difficult.
Unfortunately you have to check out the module before you can get information about it (really?)

I will use the drupal cvs repository and the cck module for example First checkout the cck module
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous:anonymous@cvs.drupal.org:2401/cvs/drupal-contrib checkout contributions/modules/cck
if you use the -d option you will have to keep adding it to every command, so better to just do
export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous:anonymous@cvs.drupal.org:2401/cvs/drupal-contrib
now you can just checkout with
cvs checkout contributions/modules/cck
The following command works pretty well
cvs log -h  | grep ": [0-9]*\.[0-9]*\.0\." | sort --unique
For instance to list the revisions for cck in drupal cvs
cvs log -h contributions/modules/cck | grep ": [0-9]*\.[0-9]*\.0\." | sort --unique
This works pretty good to list all the files and branches/tags
cvs  log -h contributions/modules/cck
list just the branches/tags for the content.module file
cvs  log -bSh contributions/modules/cck/content.module
update to a specifig branch / tag
cvs update -dP -r DRUPAL-5--1-6 contributions/modules/cck
If you have a better command or small script, please comment.
