But if they're using cvs to track release (as opposed to -current),
then they shouldn't need dates...they should always just get the
latest in that branch. This should only contain bugfixes, so it
should have increasingly-less files changed as time passes
post-release, and it should not endanger anything.
Just my thought,
Bikers don't *DO* taglines.
