[development] Beta release CVS tagging

Hmmmm....I *thought* I had RTFM and was following the instructions, but
CVS thinks otherwise.

I have, in CVS HEAD, a module that has been committed with current
changes. I want to make an official release for Drupal 6.x
compatibility, first release of this module for that core API level, and
a "beta" level of stability.

According to http://drupal.org/node/94155 and
I thought I needed to do this:

$ cvs tag DRUPAL-6--1-0-BETA

However, this returns the following error:

cvs tag: Pre-tag check failed
** See http://drupal.org/node/93999 for the format of valid release
tags.** ERROR: invalid tag for this directory:

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here? It's been a long time
since I needed to do an actual release, and I think things may have
changed since the last time I did one of these.


Kind regards,
