Not so.  You can only view devel/

All branches can be seen below per-package subdirs at http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/rpms/

Thanks - is that link mentioned publicly anywhere? It might be the handiest place to find the history of just about every spec file known to man.

The relevant point about branches here is that CVS doesn't version directories. Like rcs, all the history is contained in each file separately, which has both good and bad side effects.
