Well, GNU CVS will log 'rtag' operations if the history is enabled - does CVSNT support that? I supposed I could RTFM, couldn't I? :-) Jonathon, you can narrow down the tag to a window of time, but it will take some work. The more active your repository is, and the more files are involved, the more accurate the window will be. Also, this assumes that the tag was applied to the head revision, and that nobody moved the tag after it was created. Find the most recent timestamp of the tag (use 'cvs log -N -r TAG, and examine the dates of the revisions). This will be the earliest the tag could have been created. Next, look at the timestamp of the revision following the tag. Find the one with the earliest timestamp possible. This is the latest the tag might have been created. Unfortunately, there's no easy way to look at revision "TAG + 1" - you'll have to do it manually. Actually, have a look at the cvs-info mail archive, at http://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/info-cvs. If memory serves, several months ago someone posted a link to a Perl script that would do all that work for you. -- Jim
