Finding project level changes and statistics using CVS (WinCVS) in Eclipse

Is there a means to know exactly what files have been comitted and also files committed by person or date in Eclipse configured CVS (WinCVS)?

I have always known and used the tag application by date date1 and then on date2, I can get the complete source code from CVS with the tag date1 and always compare with tag date2 to get the difference, but I want to get all files committed by a person and if possible by/within date or time period. Is there a solution to the problem of controlling what is being committed to a CVS branch or trunk via Eclipse CVS and is it possible to get statistics of how many files and who have committed what on a day to day basis in CVS or am I asking for too much?

Thanks

You'd probably have to write a script. Eclipse gives a "commit set" view which is based on this information. It's not a report though. I think your best bet is to write a UNIX type script to parse the output of the CVS command.

Commit set is pretty handy, but I would like to know a good place where ANT or UNIX based scripts are discussed to deal with CVS commands.
