You can create a tag to mark a 'snapshot' of the files. When someone wants
version 4.2-beta of the files, , you could tag the files to mark that release
with 'snapshot-4-2-beta', and others would get it with 'cvs checkout -r
snaphot-4-2-beta'. If you want them to make changes to that snapshot w/o
affecting your trunk revisions, you can create a branch based on that tag with
'cvs rtag -r snaphot-4-2-beta BRANCH-snapshot-4-2-beta module-name', and they
can checkout/update/commit based on the branch tag. I hope this clears things
