I think Lennart meant that he didn't know where to find out that the
command "cvs log" existed, and was relevant; that he hadn't guessed that
there was such a command.

Lennart: you must have CVS installed on your machine, somehow; it will
contain a file cvs.texi (or similar), which you can compile into an info
file and then read on Emacs.  There are MS-Windows versions of gunzip,
tar and makeinfo floating around on the Internet.  Do this - it's well
worth the bother.

Thanks, I didn't know that!
