    What's the difference between the 2 CVS commands?

    Code:
    cvs tag -R -b new_branch
    cvs rtag -r new_branch
    Both are used to create a branch. What is the difference?

    Note: [the] difference between tag and rtag is that tag command adds a tag to checked out version of files whereas rtag uses the most recent versions in the repository. These can have different effects, e.g. if someone checks in new stuff while you are working.
