Re: Trying to emulate moving tags under CVS and update working copy to that tag.

We have a release process for our software that, once
the release in compiled, creates a tag to mark the
code used for the release. We had to have the ability
to re-tag the release if we re-released some software
after a fix was required.

I think this is the same as moving a tag. To do this,
we simply deleted the tag from the tags directory, and
then copied the new fileset to the new tag (with the
same name).

This works quite well for us. Conceptually, it's the
same as moving the tag. You don't want to remember
where the old tag was pointing to before. You can
still get at it using the @REVISION syntax if you need

Hope this helps,
