On a tangental note: has any thought been given to the possibility of
specifying "relative tags"?
For example, suppose multiple files had been accidentally removed, and had
to be restored. For each file, you'd have to manually specify the HEAD
revision, and (HEAD-1) revision. It would be nice if we could do something
cvs up -jHEAD -j(HEAD-1)
and CVS would automatically calculate the correct revision numbers for each
file. Am I off my rocker, or would this be a useful feature?
There are, of course, corner cases to consider - e.g. what if HEAD is 1.1?
