There are lots of "cvs commit" made before, and I want to find out which 
files are affected (or changed) in a particular "cvs commit" happened 
It's very important to know the changes made to the project on the "commit" 
For example:
1. make some changes to the files
2. cvs ci -m "check in one"
3. make some other changes to the files
4. cvs ci -m "check in two"
Now, after step 4, I found something wrong in the code, I would like look 
back and find out which files I changed in the "cvs ci" command in step 2.
