Hi Larry,

The key issue here is that Jake wants to put the tag on a branch,
based on a date.  Simply updating to the date is not sufficient.
Besides, rtag can be *much* faster than update + tag, depending on the
speed of the network connection.

In 1.11.X versions, does rtag allow the -r and -D options to be used
together?  If so, which 1.11 versions support that?

 cvs rtag -r branchname -D "YYYY-mm-dd HH:MM" VERSION_TAGNAME modulename

I understand that there is a -r BRANCH:DATE option for rtag in newer
1.12.X versions, is that correct?  If so, how would you enter the
format for a date such as the one I entered above?
