There isn't one.  Tags are stored in each file separately (there's no
central record) so you'd have to read through every file in the
repository, which could take quite a while.  For a set of checked-out
files, both ``cvs log'' and ``cvs status -v'' will give you a list of
tags in each file, which may be of some help.
