Hi all,

Is there a reason why cvs refuses to accept date as join arguments for 
the update - j command?

If I look a tag.c i get:


if (isdigit ((unsigned char) join_tag[0]))
	    error (1, 0,
		   "Numeric join tag %s may not contain a date specifier",


I would like to implement a commit script that would tag a release at 
each commit, but it gets awfully slow if you have a few thousand files 
to tag.  Any ideas?
