I disagree that it is either futile or dangerous.

It is useful because you can, at some point in time, just do a CVS checkout
using the appropriate Struts tag and get everything you need to build that
version of Struts. That way, you don't have to refer to a (possibly
erroneous) document to look up which versions you need to get.

It isn't dangerous, because you can simply ask CVS to tag the code for a
specific version of a Commons component with the relevant Struts tag. It
could be dangerous if it was done off a local code base rather than tagging
CVS against CVS itself, but that's not necessary.

I'll take care of tagging our dependencies once RC2 is out.
