And if you follow strict tag naming conventions, ViewCVS will actual draw a line on its graphs showing you those merge points between branches. This is probably exactly what you want.

CVS does not implicitly maintain this information. That is why it's important to follow an *explicit* tagging discipline when merging.  See:


for more. 

For example, you might tag all your merge sources as MERGESOURCE_<date>,
or MERGESOURCE_<branch>_<date> or whatever.  Say...MERGESOURCE_PROJECT_ABC_BRANCH_20031217.
Tag your targets with something similar so that it's easy to match source and target.

In any case, it's important for your organization to have a set of branch and merge tagging standards so that this information can be tracked.  CVS won't do it for you.
