The branch tag "version-0_11-branch" holds the 0.11.* release series.
Tag "version-0_11_0" is the 0.11.0 release.  There's no tag for
version-0_11_1 because it hasn't been released yet.  The "0.11.1 beta"
releases are just snapshots of the version-0_11-branch branch.

To check out the current 0.11.1 beta, you can do

	cvs checkout -rversion-0_11-branch mercury

To check out a 0.11.1 beta from a particular date,
use the same branch, and add a date specification using
cvs's "-D" option, e.g.

	cvs checkout -rversion-0_11-branch -D'2004-06-30' mercury

There are also tags which record, for each system that we run nightly
tests on, the most recent version on the branch that (a) bootstrapped or
(b) that bootstrapped and passed all of the test cases.
These are the unstable-version-0_11-branch-* and the
stable-version-0_11-branch-* tags respectively.
You can use "cvs status -v" to get a list of all of those tags,
	cvs checkout mercury/NEWS
	cvs status -v mercury/NEWS | grep version-0_11-branch | sort
