I am new to CVS (have used clearcase quite a bit). Can we checkout files
from multiple tags. Like for example, if I have 10000 files tagged
"may_release" and out of those 10000 files, I have 100 files which also have
tag called "patch1".
Can I tell CVS to checkout files with tag "patch1" and if "patch1" is not
present, checkout files with tag "may_release"?

sort of:
cvs tag -rmay_release patch1
cvs tag -F patch1 ListOf100Files
cvs checkout -r patch1

I don't want to label all the 10000 files as "patch1" because for patch1, we
only modified those 100 files.
In clearcase, this is very easily done through an appropriate config file. I
hope it is possible in CVS also.
