No. Tags are kept per file. A tag used on one file may or may not be
related to some other file in the repository.

You will see tags listed when you do a 'cvs log' or 'cvs rlog' command.

To get the most recent, you would need to look at the date of the
revision for each tag perfile and sort by that date to find the most
recently committed delta with an associated tag name.
