Hi Phillip;
        We have a similar situation here and I use the cvs admin -s command 
option to promote files and IMHO it is safer than tags alone.  As far as the 
different revs of the same file, I am not sure how you can resolve that.  I 
have not had the occasion to go back a version with a later build tag.  We 
always just created a new version.
