I've got a script which does what you want. It basically finds the
revision of each tag, then gets the log of the trunk between those

The script is in perl. I've posted it at:


The script was written to diff named builds, so it expects two build
names (rather than URLs) and has two functions which you'll need to
modify, one to translate a build name to the tag URL, the other to
translate the build name to the trunk URL. The script could be
modified to work with two tag URLs only, but I don't currently have
the time to do so.
