This is a quick walkthru for how to get the CVS deltas (changes to files) for a given project by bugzilla number.

It is assumed that the project's committers, when committing changes to code, tag their commits with the bugzilla number(s) associated with those commits, eg:

[81752] Changed some stuff

EMF Example

For the EMF project, you can get CVS Deltas in two ways.

Search Method

Go to the branch you want (http://www.eclipse.org/emf/news/release-notes.php?version=2.1), then search for the bug number. You can then pull up the CVS delta information by clicking the icon next to the bug id:

Direct Query Method

Or, if you don't know the branch where the bug was fixed, just go here, enter the bug id, and hit Go!

Either way, you'll end up here:
