Teach them to use "cvs log" (and even "cvs rlog" now).

Either that or teach them to use GNU-style "ChangeLog" files (which is
really trivial with some tools)....

You could also use "rcs2log" as part of your release process too,
depending on exactly when/where such log files are desired.

There is no way to "fix" $Log.  It is broken by design.
