How would this be done?  The CVSup FAQ describes using different tags
for adopting sources.  The (outdated) example says to use this for
the first cvsup:

	src-all tag=RELENG_2_2_5_RELEASE list=cvs:RELENG_2_2

Then use this for subsequent cvsups:

	src-all tag=RELENG_2_2

The CVSup FAQ says to check the Handbook for tags to use.  I was
under the impression that there was only one tag for ports:

	*default release=cvs tag=.

Its not very clear what should be done for adopting ports/docs
sources in the absense of multiple tags.  Some clarification would
be appreciated.
