I think we're talking past each other. In both cases -- CVSup and
anoncvs -- the server, whether it be cvsupd, or cvs in server mode,
needs to be told about non-standard tags. Plain cvs uses a
'CVSROOT/config' file, as you mentioned. Similarly, cvsupd uses a
'CVSROOT/options' file. If both of these files are in place and
contain the line 'tag=NetBSD', then checkouts will contain correctly
expanded revisions regardless of transport (remote / local) or tool
(cvs / cvsup).

On the other hand, I have been using cvsup.no.netbsd.org to update my
/usr/src directory for months now, and all my files have the correct
RCSId's. I'm using the netbsd-1-6 branch, so I can't offer my
memalloc.c for comparison. However,
$ head -1 /usr/src/games/rogue/save.c
/* $NetBSD: save.c,v 188.8.131.52 2002/10/01 23:45:35 lukem Exp $ */
This revision is consistent with the revision in the repository
as reported by cvsweb.netbsd.org.

Good idea, thanks.
