Hm... if you specify both a tag and a date, and the date of the tagged
revision is not the same as the specified date, what revision should be

OTOH, if it is guaranteed that the date of the tagged revision is always
the same as the specified date, why specify the date at all?

To me, it looks like there is an error somewhere. Maybe in the
configuration of the tool, or in the tool itself. To me, it doesn't make
sense to specify a tag and a date. Either they contradict each other, or
one (usually the date) is not necessary. In any case this doesn't seem like
something that needs to be fixed on the cvsnt side but rather on the Hudson

It looks to me as if this were something that can be configured in Hudson.
