Whenever I branch in RCS, the branch is done immediately (for example,
branching on 1.7 will yield in the branch 1.7.1, and the first check-in
on that branch will be

Whenever I branch in CVS, only a tag will be generated ( Only
when I check in something, the RCS branch (1.7.1) will be generated and
the checked-in version will be That tag with "" revision
is completely missing with "pure" RCS.

I am not sure if ViewCVS (and other tools) depend upon a tag with a
"zero" in its revision number to recognize a branch. If they depend on
this, they might not show the RCS branch correctly (or at all).
