I would also like to list the last 10 branch tags created.

Branches are per file, not repository wide. So, nothing will get you
this information without a full scan of the repository unless you use
'cvs rtag' to create the tags in which case, the 'cvs history' command
should be able to help you.[1] seems to do an OK job figuring it out if you run it against your whole repository, i.e., it works for me when I run it as:

` --nolog`

I do however need to have at least one normal tag on each branch to see the branch tags as branch tags, IIRC. It has been a while since I had a project with branches to use it on, but IIRC it puts the branch tags in '[]' pairs so you might be able to do something like:
` --nolog|grep \[ | tail -10`

but I am not sure the branch tags are shown in chronological order.


I could write all of these, but I am sure that someone must've done so
already given CVS's age.

If you write general purpose utilities that you think would be useful,
post them to address@hidden for possible inclusion in the contrib
