Thanks Spiro

I will take a look at cvs2cl.

Here is what happened.

Branch B was created from Branch A.  When branch B was created it was never 
built or tagged  for a period of 12 days.  In those 12 days files were 
committed to the Branch B and then the build happened.  Along with the first 
build, came the first tag on all the files.  Now I need to determine what files 
were changed during that 12 day period.  If I can figure out somehow the date 
that Branch B was created, then I could create a tag based on the date.  Also, 
without the tagging information, I'm not sure how I would create that missing 
tag on the branch.

cvs rtag -D2008-01-01 NEW-START-TAG <module> would create the tag on HEAD, 
which I don't want.  I want it to be created on Branch B.

If I understand you correctly, the branch itself was not tagged correctly?

In these cases, ( does a fairly good 
job at finding out when the branch was created. Then, you can use this date 
info to create a tag for the branch point.

Note that might fail to find the exact date when there were 
consecutive checkins at the time the branch was created. Anyway, in most cases, 
you can find it out with not much hazzle.
