I'm not quite sure what you mean by "retagging", but basically since we
want to make a tag which points to version X point to version Y, the two
only ways are to
a) remove the tag from version X and readd it on version Y:
$ cvs tag -d CONTRIB-2_0
$ cvs tag CONTRIB-2_0
b) move it:
$ cvs tag -c -F CONTRIB-2_0
Since the later is only one command and expresses better what we want to
do (move the tag to the new version of the same file), I think no one
ever thought about doing otherwise.
