Our CVS source has grown for the past 2-3 years and we have a lot of

it is becoming difficult to manage)

In order to clean it up, we are thinking of renaming all tags based on
the date it was created. Something like: <project>_<date_of_creation>

First of all, is this something advisable - renaming all tags in CVS.
Is this doable? Can someone help me with the command to use to rename
all tags in CVS.

Also, one basic question, we have always tagged the entire project
structure and it takes like 10+ minutes to complete. Is it possible to
tag just a subfolder within the project?

I've done things kind of like this, I wouldn't doubt there is a better way. But I've checked out based on a tag, deleted that tag, and the recursivly retagged with new. Its a pain to do, probably worse on large projects. More complex things is usually where I get down and dirty and write scripts to muck with the actual ,v files in CVSROOT.
