It could be client, server, or both.  It seems I guessed wrong.  :-)

You do.  (What "info page"?  Do you mean the man page?)

Apparently not, it seems to have been overlooked.

You're doing the entire directory/module, you can also do a single file:

        cvs rlog jgloss/file

And look at the help for rlog (cvs -H rlog) for options that can be used
to suppress some of the information if you're not interested in it.
