After upgrading a (Debian 3.1) server from 2.0.51d, the tag command
    >cvs tag xxx README
    cvs [tag aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages
if any)
After some troubleshooting (-ttt does not give any useful information,
and I did not succeed in getting any server trace despite following the
instructions on http://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/faq/faq5.asp#4L), I
found out that the culprit was the CVSROOT/taginfo file:
    ALL    /cvs/cvs-scripts/checktag

Commenting out the line makes the tag succeed. However, even this
taginfo file
    ALL    /bin/true
still causes cvs tag to fail (this is the last few lines of the trace):
11:48:23: S -> ACL lookup on directory /cvs/avet
11:48:23: S -> verify_acl(tag,HEAD,(null))
11:48:23: S -> user_state = 0, group_state = 0
11:48:23: S -> no match at this level
11:48:23: S -> RCS_getversion((null),(null),0)
