  I second that.  I inherited a source repository where people have been
using CVS but didn't really know how (well, maybe I don't either; and yes,
I have read the Coriolis book).
  I like to see all the tags that have been applied to a module.  `cvs
history -a -T` does not give what I want.
- it shows lots of tags not related to the module I want
- it does not show tags that I recently applied (or tried to...)
- each tag occurs numerous times
- it does not show if a tag is a sticky tag or a branch tag, which is of
vital importance.

By the way, the output of `cvs history` is sub-optimal.  I could not find
documentation of the actual meaning of all the columns with this
particular command.  Also the date just shows just the day and month, not
the year!

Where do I submit change requests?
