Whoops. This hadn't been intended to be a private message. Somehow it
seems Outlook isn't regarding the ReplyTo... no, wait... there is
none! Is this intended?

How?! That's the point of me asking really... ;]
I'm only ever using CVSNT on the client end and so far I haven't found
a server running CVS 1.11.2 out there...
However, I could tell you what I expect it to look like, from my
understanding of the above quote:
Currently, when you do a (r)log for e.g. all revisions since a
specific release, i.e. cvs log -rReleaseX:: you will also get back the
headers of those files that haven't changed at all since that release.
It's quite tiresome to wade through pages of useless log-output,
scanning for the few files that are actually relevant.
I expect this new -S option to output only files, where "Selected
Revisions" (i.e. the number of revisions that match the given filter)
is greater than 0. Apart from this the output should be exactly the
same as that of normal log.
Currently I either do this by hand (pasting the output into an editor
and purging the irrelevant parts) or using a makeshift script (which
doesn't work very well yet).
