This is true only if you are doing an rtag. A cvs tag will label what you currently have checked
out in your workspace.

cvs rtag will tag the repository, cvs tag will tag your workspace. Two options:

1. cvs rtag, then checkout the tag with cvs co -r tagname
2. cvs co first, then cvs tag

These two possibilities will ensure that what you are building is what is tagged, and vice-versa.
