As for getting out of it: it looks like the misapplied tags are revision
tags not branch tags, eg
RCS file: /cvsroot/pgsql/contrib/btree_gist/btree_bit.c,v
Working file: btree_bit.c
REL7_4_STABLE: 1.7 <--- wrong
which I think means that there's a one-liner way out of it. The CVS
To delete a tag, specify the `-d' option to either `cvs tag' or `cvs
rtag'. For example:
cvs rtag -d rel-0-4 tc
deletes the non-branch tag `rel-0-4' from the module `tc'. In the
event that branch tags are encountered within the repository with the
given name, a warning message will be issued and the branch tag will
not be deleted. If you are absolutely certain you know what you are
doing, the `-B' option may be specified to allow deletion of branch
tags. In that case, any non-branch tags encountered will trigger
warnings and will not be deleted.
So I think that "cvs rtag -d REL7_4_STABLE pgsql" will fix it.
I'd like someone to double-check that though. Also maybe we should back
up the repository first?
