'cvs status -v' will tell you. You could also use 'cvs log' but then you'd
have to manually interpret the revision number. Any revision number where
the second-to-last number is 0 is a branch tag. For example:

Non-branch tags: 1.3 
Branch tags:,

You have to check on a file-by-file basis - it is possible for it to be a
branch tag in one file, and a non-branch tag in another (a branch tag still
specifies a version, by the way, so "version tag" is essentially a synonym
for "tag").

Only by deleting the tag, then re-adding it as the other type.
