To build release 2.1 of Product Y, I will use release 3.4 of product A, release 5.3 of product B, and release 2.0 of product D.

How is this typically handled within CVS?

Make each product a separate module. Then you can tag each release of each product and export them independently.

Here's a way to build your product Y:

Keep each released version of every product in some well-known place. This goes for third party products as well as your internal products. For example, build release 3.4 of product A and put it in /company/product/V3_4/ or something like that.

To create a release of product Y, your build procedure can use the released versions of the products it depends on. There doesn't have to be a distinction here between your internal products and third party products because they are all referenced in a similar manner.
