14  - Fix a longstanding date-bug in showing local time. Now timezone is accounted  - Fix all numeric author ID
   for.  
15    
16  - Fix the CVSNT habbit of adding info to the tag in symbols. The trailing data  - Changed acceptable mail policy. See below in this file
   is skipped for now. I might use it later on; it contains a date and comments  
   on tags.  
17    
18  - Fix the author recognition for CVSNT with broken rcsfile(5) format. This  - Fix incomplete parsing of access keyword in rcsfile
   might not be a total remedy, but should fix some.  
19    
20  - Fix XHTML <br> to be <br /> and add HTML-izing '&' to &amp; and '"' to &quot;  - Fix missing branch_bgcolor in manpage
21    
22  - Fix execution flags of regexec().  - Fix author names with spaces but not in @ encapsulation
23    
24  - Fix the sizeof(void *) vs sizeof(int) problem. Now look for int, long and  - Added multiple merge_{from,to,color} matching. Now several regex
25    long long in configure.    combinations are allowed to run concurrently.
26    
27  - Add the arrow patch and adapted to be more configurable.  - Added dynamic colors and strings for more flexibility in visual
28      representations of the tree.
29    
30  - Fix manual page typo. Documentation and other aesthetic related fixes.  - Added keyword rev_idtext to define the revision ID in a revision
31      box. Normally this would show the revision number, but can now be

 Alternately, you can hack the 'cvsweb' package to call CvsGraph. There are  
 several scripts and patches available from the CvsGraph homepage (see below for  
 address). However, the scripts are no longer maintained because ViewCVS has  
 native support now.

116      If you are interested in tag-management with respect to the correct branch
117      information, then I suggest that you take a look at the contribution from
118      Henrik Carlqvist. He submitted some server-side scripts that can manage tags
119      in a better fashion than cvs on its own.
