For reproducability, you may want to create a branch tag and check your changes
into that, then release a patch.

If you start using "cvs tag -F" to force tags around, you no longer have a tag 
corresponds to the original release.

Here is an example :


# we've reached 1.0

cvs tag release-1_0_0

# uh-oh, found a bug that needs to be fixed.
# first, create a 1.0 branch 

cvs update release-1_0_0
cvs tag -b release-1_0-branch

# update to branch, fix problem, check in

cvs update -r release-1_0-branch

# tag the patch release as 1.0.1
cvs tag release-1_0_1
