What is your problem?
If you want to "track" tag operations just create a script or program
thta does that and then launch it in the taginfo script like so:
ALL <path to>/<your tag handling program> <command line parameters>

The <command line parameters> is your chance to get interesting info
from CVSNT like $USER $CVSROOT etc. (see the CVSNT manual for a
complete list of arguments and variables).

Notice that CVSNT does not send in the tag file list as command line
arguments anymore (like the Cederquist describes). Instead this list
is sent in on STDIN to the launched program. THis is because of size
constraints on Windows.
