+    <para>Similarly, in CVS a tag or branch is an annotation on the
+      file, or on the version information for that individual file,

+      tree (by convention, into the <filename>/branches</filename>
+      or <filename>/tags</filename> directories that appear at the top
+      level of the repository, beside <filename>/trunk</filename>). In

+      version, and of course the latest version on the trunk
+      itself. So, to refine the terms even further, one would often
