Re: Tag a branch as of date

The way I have done tagging on a branch is sort of kludgy but it works.

cvs checkout -F -r <BranchName> -D <Date&Time> <module>
cd <module>
cvs tag <TagName>

Keep in mind that you better have a pretty good idea of the date and
stamp.  The above works fine if you have a small development team with
churn in the branch but is deadly if you don't.  I also recommend the -F
to make sure you get YOU want for the tag.
