CVS is a *file* versioning system, it does not have any concept of a
revision number for any larger package.  Most people use tags to
identify higher-level version information, so perhaps doing a status -v
on a file to list those tags will provide some information.  If you did
that on the CVS source repository, for example, you'd see tags like
cvs1-10-7, cvs1-10-8, and cvs1-11, which correspond to the 1.10.7,
1.10.8, and 1.11 releases of CVS.
