[Gnu-arch-users] how to best tag releases

I'm looking for the recommended way to tag and manage releases with
arch. On IRC tonight it was recommended that I use 'configs', which I
couldn't find a concrete HOWTO example for. Here's what I figured out:

# These steps only need to be done once for project
$ mkdir configs
$ echo './      address@hidden/cgi-uploader--main--0'>configs/uploader.arch

# Now to create a new release tag based on the current patch level
tla cat-config --snap --output configs/release-0.61_02 uploader.arch 

 From there, I would just have to make sure that my configs are preserved, and I
suppose 'build-config' would be used to fetch the release in the future. I
haven't gotten that far yet. :)

Before now, I've been using 'tla tag', like my example below. I didn't like 
I had explicitly give the revision I wanted to tag. I wanted a way to say 
something that would
mean something like the "current tree revision" or "latest revision". (I was 
able to do that in CVS.)

tla tag --setup cgi-uploader--main--0--patch-15 cgi-uploader--releases--0.61.02

Another (potential) solution would be to have a "--snap" option for 'tag', 
which work
like it does for 'cat-config'-- it would tag based on the current patch level.
