This is the way I advocate CVS usage.
We use tags of the form 'Build-YYYYMMDD-nn' then
use a 'Release-NN_MM_XX' tag at the point of release.

Subject: tag limits?


I've recently read Martin Fowler's paper on continouous integration 

This paper seems to advocate tagging or "labeling" each build with a 
build number regardless of whether is is any kind of milestone, 
release or whatever.  The paper also indicates that builds may happen 
as often as every 10-15 minutes or so.  This could result in many, 
many tags or "labels" being assigned to a given version of a file; 
could be dozens, or hundreds.

Can CVS support this?  Is there any limit on tags?  Any comments on 
the whole concept in the context of CVS?
