The operative word is "private".

No; from a *non*-private branch.  Other than that detail, your
description of a branch-based release process sounds bang on.

CVS doesn't distinguish between private and non-private branches;
from its point of view they're all just "cvs tag -b <branch>"
branches.  The only difference is in your intention in creating
thebranch, and thus what you subsequently do with it; CVS doesn't
know or care.  Hence Jim's suggestion of a naming scheme so your
team can keep all those different-purposed branches straight.

(Vendor branches, which of course CVS does treat specially, don't
come into this discussion at all.)

It must be said that they would have sounded better if the singer
wouldn't throw his fellow band members to the ground and toss the
drum kit around during songs.
