The tag is applied in the repository, to the versions which your
working copy is based on---i.e. the versions that are recorded in the
CVS/Entries and reported by cvs status as the ``Working revision''.
Thus after you commit your work, you can tag what you did without
worrying that there is any race against other commits. As such, the
time interval then doesn't matter. Whether you tag a second later, or
three weeks later, there is no difference---as long as you don't
update your working copy to pick up newer revisions!
