I want to get a list of all project changes since a certain date/tag. 
This is what I usually do:

cvs -q rdiff -f -s -r TAGNAME MODULES

 >cvs -q rdiff -f -s -r questor-1_9_20 QuestorProducts
File ZopeProducts/DataMining/DataMining.py changed from revision 1.43 to 1.44
File ZopeProducts/DataMining/icons/DataMiningIconOriginal.gif is 
removed; not included in current release

This gives me an one-line entry for each modified and deleted file - 
but unfortunately newly added files are not included. How could I get 
those new files too?

cvs diff -N *might* work but:
- it requires an up-to-date sandbox (rdiff above does not)
- it has a bug (recently posted) when there are new files not yet commited
(and rdiff does not have -N)
