Assuming you are logging these events in CVSROOT/history, you can find some
possibly useful information using "cvs history".
You can see when a particular user checked out a particular module or
repository directory, and if any tags were specified. If the repository was
accessed locally, rather than in client/server mode, you can see where it
was checked out to. These are O records in the history file.
Updates will only show up in the history if a file was actually updated from
the repository. These are history records of types C, G, U, and W.
So you asked if it was easy. I guess not. The history command has always
seemed pretty cryptic to me, and it usually doesn't provide the information
I want.
