Sorry - Having never done *software* releases" with CVS myself, I misphrased my query. What I really meant was 'cvs export'. In other words, we do a 'cvs export' of a tagged branch as part of our release process. I wanted to capture the tag name of the cvs-*exported* branch by processing a CVS variable in a file. This does not seem possible.


Hmm, Maybe this reply does not address the original post.
I think the reason why *release* was in quotes is to not imply the
release command but rather an individual's "release" process.  I too am
interested in how to expand a label or symbolic tag into a file.  This
would be handy for building tags and making them available for download
from a script.  This is what I do when I "release" software.

        What? ``Symbolic tag of the current release'' isn't a CVS
        there is no notion of a current release. That is an ontology
which you
        impose on your tags, usually by applying some kind of software
        The (perhaps ill-named) cvs release command implements a
discipline for
        destroying a checked out copy. It has nothing to do with making
        software release.
