There is a WHATSNEW file at the top-level of the Ant CVS and

WHATSNEW is just a text file.

But the <cvschangelog> task could be used to extract all the commit 
history from one version to another.

But of course! (after a little command-line bootstrap)

Not that I know of, definitely not in Ant's codebase.  But given 
<cvschangelog> outputs XML, you could <xslt> that into RSS if you like.

A manual cvs update by a committer.  I've done this a few times, but 
not since we've moved to so I suspect I'd need a 
refresher on how to do it.  It's not automatic though.
