I'm not sure that's a typo. val-tags is generated and updated by the system (same as history is), where most of the files in that directory are handled with the standard checkin methods. The checkin method creates a new ,v file and moves it into the directory. The val-tags and history are edited in-place AFAIK. -- Glen Starrett
