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, but the  
releng page at or this link:
