I know tagging, that's dead simple.  I am talking about a branch.  I  
can google "cvs tag" or "cvs branch" myself too, but a personal  
recommendation is worth a lot more than a google search.

I am more interested in experience in managing changes in the  
branch.  Some changes should get folded in to MAIN, others are only  
for the branch.  I am sure there are things that you can do that will  
make your life easier when the time to merge comes.
