    The multi-tty branch has never been in CVS (anywhere), so you'll have to
    use arch to see historical log entries.

That is not good.  Please do not do it.

What needs to be done is this: for each file, extract all its change log items
from the arch changeset change logs (or from ChangLog), and use that as
the CVS log for the file.

That file is called ChangeLog.  "Merged XYZ branch" is not acceptable
in ChangeLog as a substitute for the actual change log entries.

If the file ChangeLog has not been maintained for the multi-tty
branch, then part of putting it into the Emacs repository is creating
the necessary ChangeLog entries.

    Ok, I've put the multi-tty sources into CVS and arch branches on

Did you do it right, as described above?
If not, it has to be done over.
