CVS has no notion of "the last change" or "an atomic revision" or
"a timestamp of the last change".  You can probably get the latter by
going through the entire tree but that's hugely expensive.

sys/conf/newver.sh has logic for SVN and for people using git locally.
I fear for CVS/csup/cvsup you'll have to live with what's been there
and use out-of-band information remembering when you last cvsupped or
checkout to a date and patch aforementioned script to get that information.

   It does not matter how good you are. It matters what good you do!
