This is my mistake. I apologize. I was trying to simply tag my 
interwiki module, and got confused by the program I'm using (CVL on 
Mac OS X). It has a "Tag Files" command in its "Work Area" menu, so I 
selected the interwiki module in my work area and then selected the 
"Tag Files" command. To my surprise, it started iterating through all 
of contrib, and I didn't know how to stop it.

After this happened, I realized that there's a separate "Tag" command 
in CVL's "File" menu. I'm guessing that this is what I should have 

I'm new to CVS and to CVL, and this isn't the first frustrating 
experience I've had with it. However, it's the first time that 
something like this has negatively affected Drupal's contributions 

Once again, I apologize, but in my defense, the interface to CVL is 
pretty damn confusing. I'd like to find a simple tutorial so I can 
learn how to just use CVS directly from my terminal command line. Can 
someone point me to one?
