[replying to list in case others want to know this as well]

To get a list of files between two dates you can use rdiff.

Like so:

cvs rdiff -s -D 2004-03-01 -D 2004-03-10 module(s)

The "-s" option give you a single line with the file status of new,
changed or removed and a revision number.  You can then use a revision
number to get the information you want specifically from "cvs log", like

cvs log -N -rrevision file

This will provide you with the time, version, comment and user making
the change in one step.  You'll need to parse the output if you want
something easily readable. Oh, and I use the "-N" option to skip the
listing of tags which isn't that useful at this stage.

I've got all this scripted together so it's a one step operation.  You
should be able to do something similar pretty easily.

Best of luck.
