Release 3.0 of Dick Grune's original CVS scripts were published to the
comp.sources.unix newsgroup, volume 22 issue 13.  You can find them at
the following URL:

Don't expect much in the way of the kind of documentation you're seeking.
There's a man page and comments in the code.  The code comments were copied
faithfully when Brian Berliner translated it to C, but have been changed
substantially since then.

Also note that the Berliner and Grune implementations had already diverged
by this point.  Grune's "historian" is an alpha-quality attempt to track
actual configurations, which the Berliner implementation has never done well.
