Folks,

It would be very useful if you could apply CVS labels
to the source that you use to build releases. This
would allow people to grab specific releases, not just
the head, from CVS. Here's the issue I've got now:
I'm using xdoclet 1.1.2 (it's cool!) and I'd like to
make a small hack to it. The current cvs head xdoclet
would require that I upgrade ant to a beta version
which I'd rather not do. If there were tags in CVS I
could just grab the source to 1.1.2 and rock-n-roll.

Yes, I can get the source tarball but then I lose all
of CVS's useful features such as diffing and merging
from the repository.

Thanks,
Toby Cabot

    We already do. The tag for the 1.1.2 release versions of
    files is XDoclet-v1-1-2
