> It brings the last revision.

If two tags are on different branches, which is the "last revision"? Which 
one should be checked out? And if two tags are on the same branch, the last 
revision is simply that pointed to by the last tag, it will overwrite any 
other release already checked out - no need to checkout more than one. 
Unless you're tagging *each* file with different tags - if so, IMHO it just 
brings to an unmanageable repository soon or later. There could be better 
ways to handle such situations (i.e. changesets).

But in what order do you process selected tags? It is relevant.

And a lot of people here are here to help you - just they may need more 
information than those supplied in the first question.

That's a simple case. Something that could be dealt with by hand. If cvsnt 
implemented a "multi tag checkout feature", it should work in any scenario, 
not just a given one.

Ok, don't worry. Just understand people help here for free, and they use 
some of their own time to do it. Helping them to answer without trying to 
guess what someone means or needs is always appreciated :-)
