The question is, should we TAG the code when we release a
stable version. Yes!   Decide on a tagging convention which
is appropriate for you and at the top level of code that you want
to tag you type:


where the tagname GRASS-VERSION5-DATE-TIME-ETC is an example name.

Yes, anyone needing the code corresponding to that tag could
then retrieve it at any time.

'cvs update -r GRASS-VERSION5-DATE-TIME-ETC bin_digit.c'

 The single quotes are only for this email and not used on the command line.

Yes, and you can create tags for subdirectories as well.  When a
particular module is done, the developer can tag that section of
code with his/her own tagname.   Code can always be retrieved
by the revision number since that is by definition a tagname.
