I am currently working on a 'cvs push and pull tool', the gory details of which i shall skip. I have to process files in the working directory based on the branch that they belong to, if they do.

      Now, cederquivist states
      >> $ cvs tag -b rel-1-0-patches
      >> [snip]
>>Note that the numeric revision number that matches rel-1-0 will probably be different from file to file.

I understand this to mean two files at the head of a newly created branch may have A.B.C.X and A.B.C.Y as their version numbers.
   Can i expect the A.B.C part to be same for both files?

Or do you suggest that going by tags would be a better idea. Either way, it doesn't hurt to know.
