I need to achieve list of release tags for selected project. Does exist some
form of command line which supports it?

I use WinCVS client.


Assuming that all of your release tags follow a pattern, i.e., release_1, release_2, release_3....

The tool I would use is cvs2cl[1].

cvs2cl -t -T --show-dead

This should give you a Changelog file that contains, among other things, a list of every normal[2] tag ever applied to the baseline. _From there you can search for the pattern that above I assumed existed.

`cvs2cl --help` should give you help with the options of your version of cvs2cl.

or the python version of it that is included in CVSNT (Which IIRC is included in WinCVS)

[2] it _may_ not show branch tags (created with `cvs tag -b`), but I am not 

You may also want to ask on the CVSNT mailing list, because there folks there who are more familiar with what is available in the windows toolbox.

cvsnt list:

Hope this helps.
