ChangeLogs from CVS

One nice thing about CVS is that you can get ChangeLogs between versions for very little work. For example we like to know what have changed between two stable versions of WebLearn (the Oxford deployment of Bodington),at the moment we are going from 2.6.4 to 2.6.5 and there is a nice tool called cvs2cl with which you can query your CVS tree and ask for all the changed between two versions. I build my ChangeLogs with the command: --delta WebLearn_2_6_4:HEAD -F branch_WebLearn_2_6 -r .
and it will give me all the changes between 2.6.4 and the latest version on the branch called branch_WebLearn_2_6.
