Diff by branch tag and date? Maybe with PCL-CVS?

this is probably not an Emacs related question, maybe a PCL-CVS

I'm working on the gnus-5_10-branch of Emacs.  Suppose I would like to 
see all the changes in this branch from a certain date upto now.

The command...
$ cvs diff -r gnus-5_10-branch -D yesterday gnus.el
... doesn't work.  It presents a useless diff against the version on
the *trunk* of yesterday:

| diff -u -r1.27.2.2 -r1.27
| --- gnus.el     16 Aug 2004 10:13:58 -0000
| +++ gnus.el     1 Sep 2003 15:45:24 -0000       1.27
| [...]

Searching the archives, it seems to me that this isn't possible at all
with cvs, see e.g.
and <URL:https://ccvs.cvshome.org/fom/cache/281.html>.

Maybe there's some a command in PCL-CVS (or a combination of commands)
to view diffs on a branch?

Bye, Reiner.
