If you really Really REALLY want to tag the head of a branch then just
check out the branch (or do a "cvs update" in any existing working
directory which has no un-committed changes) then then apply the tag to
what you get as a result by running "cvs tag" in that working directory.
That way you can know ahead of time exactly what you've got.  It's then
up to the user whether or not they actually look to see what's there
before they tag it.

What I fail to understand is why anyone would want to tag the head of a branch in an instantaneous fashion. Wouldn't you want to build/test, etc. first? If you're just doing daily tags, can't you just tag the previous second - wouldn't that be good enough?

I'm kind of lost on what the point of contention is here. What is it that someone would want to do that is affected by the tag locking change? Could someone please clarify?
