115    - contrib/automatic_documentation:
116      If you are interested in tag-management with respect to the correct branch
117      information, then I suggest that you take a look at the contribution from
118      Henrik Carlqvist. He submitted some server-side scripts that can manage tags
119      in a better fashion than cvs on its own.
