CVS tag naming conventions



Hello, Folks!

I just realized that when CVS tagging a document revision, it is not
sufficient to tag only the document directory: one must also tag the
building infrastructure in "docs-common/".  Tags are fast, cheap and
easy, so we can use as many as we like.

Using a command such as:

$ cvs tag <some-tag-or-other> docs-common example-tutorial

will make it easy to reproduce a document any time in the future.

Here comes my question:

Since tags will be shared among all documents that use
"docs-common/", how should tags be formed?  

Perhaps something such as "cvs tag example-tutorial-foo docs-common
example-tutorial" where the "foo" is up to you.  A tag can get
project-wide, "example-tutorial-FC5_test2", or very local,
"example-tutorial-corrected-typo".

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Donations?
