If you really need to do it, the generally accepted manner is to use the
cvsgui protocol:
This is, in simple terms, a wrapper around the cvs[nt] client, and is used,
IIRC, by WinCVS, TortoiseCVS, etc.

If you want something that is independent of the cvs[nt] client, then you
are talking about a library that implements the cvs[nt] wire protocols to
talk to the cvs[nt] server. So you will need to look at things like:

Of course, with the audit plugin, most cvs operations are logged in a SQL
database which you can query using your favourite language or reporting
tool... it all just depends what you want to do and how you want to do it,
i.e. tmtowtdi (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/TMTOWTDI)
