Yeah, isn't that a bummer!
>From a checked-out sandbox you can do a `cvs status -v README'
(substitute a random existing file for README) to list all the tags
and branches *on that one file*. It's generally a bad idea to branch
individual files, so hopefully the list applies to the entire project.
Without a sandbox, I think you need a shell account on the machine
that holds the repository. You do a plain RCS "rlog README,v" and
extract the branch list form the output.
To the list: does cvsweb provide a solution to James' problem?
