I want to get a timestamp of when was the last change (commit) to the
repository, by branch (meaning, for each branch get the timestamp of
when a file was committed in it). basically i want to put it in some
file so when someone reports a bug, i can checkout from the cvs so that
it matches exactly the user's code.

How will having the time stamp help you match exactly the users code?

The more reliable way would be for the user to
commit (buggy code),
put a tag on their now committed sandbox,
report the bug against the tag, which you can then checkout against and actually get what they were working with (assuming they actually committed ALL the buggy code).

Some part of me is screaming: Why are they reporting bugs against a baseline that was not tagged to begin with? But we may be able to beat that loud mouth down.
