Yep, I'm a geek newbie, thanks for the simple advice!

Any idea why the -r and -D options for rtag are mutually exclusive? It seems to 
me that it would be a useful feature for the rtag command.

The "-r Whitney_maintenance_branch" on the "cvs tag" line
explicitly says to tag each file's latest revision on the branch.

Having got the right revisions into your sandbox via the initial
checkout, you should be able to simply say:
        cvs tag TPAS_1_1_1
