You can use 'cvs log -t <file>'. It'll list both tags and branches; I begin
each tag with a 't' and each branch with a 'b' so that this is more

But generally I prefer a visual tool for that (WinCvs or TortoiseCVS).

cvs rchacl -r bTestBranch -u theUser -a read rootModule/1stLevelModule

Assigns read permissions to theUser on branch bTestBranch in the module
