I would archive the source used to generate the purify results with the
results. By capturing the source and headers you eliminate the possible
problems, and the decision of which revision to tag becomes irrelevant
wrt the purify runs. That is what I have done as mentioned in our
previous internal correspondence.

I don't know if that is a safe assumption or not. I believe that 4.2.1
changes are happening on trunk but aren't being merged out to

I don't really understand exactly what the tags are used for, so I don't
know how useful my feedback is. If these 'tags' are intended to indicate
release candidates, as implied by the name, then it wouldn't make sense
to skip changes that we know are going to make it into the release.
