Tags are how you identify releases!  The command:

        cvs rdiff -rproject_SIT1_ddmmyyyy -rproject_SIT2_ddmmyyyy -s modname

will give you almost what you asked for but it won't list file_a since
it hasn't changed.  If you really need unchanged files, too, you'll
have to resort to using the log or rlog commands which will give you a
lot of other stuff, too:

        cvs rlog -rproject_SIT1_ddmmyyyy::project_SIT2_ddmmyyyy modname

There are additional [r]log options that may be useful to filter out
some of the stuff you're not interested in.
