This issue has been raised before. The tags are for cgf's convenience
only. There are no guarantees that they would correspond to any
particular version of the release. One way of figuring out the CVS
timestamp to check out is downloading the corresponding source package and
looking at its timestamps... I'm not sure how the timestamps will now
interact with the development on separate branches, though. Other ways
may be suggested by people here.
