cvs history -T will provide you a list of tags and their timestamps.

If you need more information than this provides, you could call a script
that captures the additional information from the CVSROOT/taginfo file.

Subject: Timestamping Tags?

Is there some way to easily associate a tag with the creation
time of that tag? Meaning, w/o making the creation time a part
of the actual tag, is there some simple way to determine the
creation time of the tag in CVS.

I ask because what I would like to be able to do is to
associate a tag (regular or branch) with the exact moment in
time the tag was created. I'd prefer _not_ to actually
incorporate the time into the tag, as has been suggested by
others I have talekd to. And I realize that tags are all
about corroborating the state of the code at an exact moment
in time. But is there an easy way to reference this information,
the time a specific tag was created?
