It depends, did you set a watch?

Read pages 27 in the Cederqvist CVS manual, then section 6.6. We add a
watch to the entire source tree. Then when people checkout code they
must run "cvs edit" to get a writable version of the file before
making modifications"

The cvs editors command then call tell you who has typed "edit" on a
given file. The information is tracked in the repository CVS/fileattr

If I have this file:


Then the actual editors data will be tracked in 

 cat $CVSROOT/class/shell/Sdb/CVS/fileattr | grep

and it will look something like this:      _watched=;_editors=peng>Tue Oct  3 20:50:08 2000;_watchers=peng>tedit+tunedit+tcommit

Generally speaking just use the "cvs edit", "cvs unedit", and "cvs
editors" command rather than looking at the files directly, though.
