Why do these tags have two independent naming schemes embedded within
1) a date
2) a release number
I can imagine reasons it might be nice to have tags that include dates
in them, (for example to be able to reproduce a hypothetical nightly
"snapshot" tarball). Otherwise, a tag with a date doesn't seem to
helpful since CVS can provide code for a specific date anyway.
Getting to the point, currently it's hard to deduce the tag for a
given release, (one must consult a list giving the dated tag name
I would prefer a system that had simpler tag names that a mere mortal
could actually predict such as:
cvs update -r release_5_0_0_pre4
