One of the problems with using tags is that developers can and sometimes do move them around. This was a serious concern for me at one time, and it's one of the reasons why my preferred change control and build audit methods pass around lists of file names and version numbers.

If this is of concern to you, then see if you can build a suitable access control mechanism using taginfo. It has the ability to halt a tag or rtag operation if the script you supply exits with a non-zero status.

It is not clear from your message why you need to use the rcs version
numbers. If you are already using tags then you seem to have missed the point of why they are useful. I can't imagine a reason why you couldn't just tell somebody the tag name and have that be good enough. Maybe I just
don't understand what you are trying to do, however.
