After my previous post, I had the change to do this properly.  The
difference here is that I was in another working directory:

$ cvs update -j 1.2 watch-list.php
$ cvs stat -v watch-list.php

[showed no FreshPorts2 tags]

$ cvs commit watch-list.php
$ cvs stat -v watch-list.php
File: watch-list.php    Status: Up-to-date

   Working revision:
   Repository revision: 
   Sticky Tag:          FreshPorts2 (branch: 1.2.2)
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      (none)

   Existing Tags:
        FreshPorts2                     (branch: 1.2.2)

Thank you Larry.  That's a very easy way to achieve what I need.  Much
