RE: rtag not tagging everything?

I use rtag command on a nightly basis to tag the top of our tree,
and then pull from that tag to do our nightly builds.

I've never seen any instance where all files in the module were not
(i.e. this would result in a build failure for us if it did...), and 
the rtag command used in this way does select the most recent revision 
on the trunk.

That is a dangerous (some might even say meaningless) command -- exactly
what revision of each file did you intend to tag?  You didn't say, so
you don't really know what you tagged.

Since you didn't tell CVS exactly what to tag, you shouldn't be
surprised that you didn't get what you want.  To be honest, I'm not
entirely sure what happens when you use rtag without specifying a
particular revision.  My guess is that it tags the most recent revision
on the trunk, so any files that don't exist on the trunk (either they
only exist on a branch or they've been deleted and don't exist anywhere)
won't be tagged.
