For me, the problem isn't understanding the concept of a branches and
tags, but getting CVS to tell me the reality of those branches and tags.
Maybe I just haven't learned how to use the tool properly, but I am
constantly worried that I've crossed branches and tagged the wrong
files. I know what I should do, but I don't know if that's what I did.
I feel like I've learned the concepts of VCS much easier with Bazaar
than I ever would have with CVS. That's mostly because I actually felt
comfortable using it.
