When you tag a version, CVS remembers the exact version of all of the
various files, so that you can check those out again in a completely
reproducible fashion. This probably doesn't matter much to a normal
user, but is quite helpful to someone creating an "official" .iso
image for a CD-ROM, and also matters to the security officer/team.
There's some documentation under www.netbsd.org/releng, but the
releng page at www.freebsd.org or this link:
