after manually helping various folks convert DRUPAL-4-(7|6) tags into
branches, i couldn't stand it anymore, so i wrote a script to do this
conversion in bulk. after lots of testing on scratch.drupal.org, and
coordination with killes in IRC, i just ran this script for real on
the d.o contrib repository.
everything went smoothly, so there are no longer any DRUPAL-4-(7|6)
tags in our repository. they're all branches now, like we always
the cvs access control scripts prevent people from adding new tags
(e.g. DRUPAL-5) that should really be branches, so this was only a
problem for older modules and themes.
see http://drupal.org/node/103429 for details (and, if you care, the
script i used for this).
list of all DRUPAL-4-7 tags that were converted to branches (71 total):
list for DRUPAL-4-6 (90 total):
p.s. i disabled the repository's email notification on new tags when
these scripts ran, so if you're wondering why you didn't get email
about any of these branches being added as it was happening, that's why.
