[drupal-devel] Help?

Is your question: How can I retag the module? i.e. How can I move the
tag from an older version to a more current one?

If so, then you need to delete the tag first then tag it.

cvs tag -d DRUPAL-4-5 file(s)
[Note the -d here]

cvs tag DRUPAL-4-5 file(s)

Note that this has a side effect: people who downloaded and used the
old module will say they have the 4.5.0 version of the module, and
then people who will download the module tomorrow will say that they
have the same version.

This can lead to support nightmares, since two different pieces of
code are tagged the same.

However, this seems to be common practice in contrib. I have discussed
this on the list in the past, and it was suggested that a date be
included in the tar ball name, but no action was taken on that.
