Two ways:
a) Get log for each one and combine them
b) Get log for the root ('/tomcat/')

Do not forget to use '--limit' argument when using 'svn log' command.
E.g. 'svn log --limit 100'

(By default svn log does not have a limit, which is a burden on the server).

The logs are there. I am just saying that it may be a bit harder to
follow those.

If you know the bug number, it is easier to search mailing list (dev@)
archive for commit e-mail with that bug number.

If you know the text in changelog.xml, you can search for that text.

If you know in what version an issue was fixed, you can perform svn
diff between versions and get a list of changed files.
