Hi wwg,

Assuming version 3.3.6 was tagged as such, you'll need to find out the
exact name of the tag. One simple way to do that would be to pick a file
in your CVS working directory that's likely to have been around for most
(or all) tags and invoke 'cvs status -v' on it. Most projects have a
'README' file or similar in the top-level source code directory that
works well for this purpose:

    $ cvs status -v README

The output will list, among other things, the various CVS tags
associated with that file. You can then use one of the tags to check out
the version that you're interested in:

    $ cvs co -r SOME_TAG_NAME_3-3-6 PROJECT_NAME
