Hi Mike,

CVS has the (to me, odd) restriction on tags that they may not contain the characters `$,.:;@' . This is puzzling in light of the fact that the most common way, both historically and currently, to tag releases is in x.y.z form. I suspect that there is a standard substitution for the dots. Is there? If so, which char?
Normally one substitutes the dots by '_' or '-'. Still tags may not start with a digit but must begin with a letter. Maybe you want to use what is described in the Cederquist manual: prefixing the version-numbers by the name of the project (CVS version 1.9 would become cvs1-9, cvs-1_9, ...)
