I probably use 'cvs ann' at least once a month. I'm involved
in several medium-sized projects (500-1000 files, averaging
700-1000 lines each) and I find it useful to figure out either
the context in which a particular change was made or to determine
what the file looked like before the change was made.

For either one, I'll do 'cvs ann' to find the revision where
the line or lines I'm interested in were changed.

To get the context, I'll do 'cvs diff -r<rev-1> -r<rev>'.

To find out what the file looked like before the change,
I'll either do 'cvs ann -r<rev-1> | less' or even
'cvs update -r<rev-1>'.
