Small bug in cl2html.pl

I've just discovered a bug in cl2html.pl. There's been an increase in 
editors and CVS contributions lately. Multiple people commit to CVS on 
the same day. However, the online changelogs don't reflect this 
(http://test.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/news.html#changelog; see

Tushar Teredesai - 2003/08/26
           o add patch to opensp
           o added graphical Links contributed by Igor
           o DJ finished rpppoe
           o put ftp back on cvs
           o changed cvs download, intro on PAM
           o added dependencies for fontconfig

Actually only the first item belongs to Tushar - the rest has been 
committed by Larry. It seems the script puts the name of whomever 
comitted last on top of the list of CVS commits from one day.

Anderson, can you fix this if you have some time? No rush though since 
it's only a minor bug.

Anyway, the preferred behavior should be:
- query CVS for all commits
- order them based on user and sort these by date
- order each user list with changes first->last top-down
- output result based on date (since Tushar committed the last change, 
he comes on top. If Larry would commit last, he would come on top, 
allthough some commits in his list for the day come before Tushar's commit.)
- result:

Tushar Teredesai - 2003/08/26
           o add patch to opensp

Larry Lawrence - 2003/08/26
           o added dependencies for fontconfig (1)
           o changed cvs download, intro on PAM (2)
           o put ftp back on cvs (3)
           o DJ finished rpppoe (4)
           o added graphical Links contributed by Igor (5)
