This seems to be an extremely frequent question and the default answer
would be:

You don't, as there is no need to.

Read chapter 4.2 of the CVS manual about the difference between
revisions and releases and why version is a word not to use.

If you still feel the need to jump revisions (thereby losing
information about what files are stable between releases) chapter 4.3
will help you out.
