We use tags to pull patcher for release updates, they look like UPDATE_PACKAGING_Rn for some number n. This page documents the changes between tags. It covers mozilla/tools/release and mozilla/tools/patcher in cvs.m.o:/cvsroot.

As well as providing a quick reference, this is here to track moving tags as CVS doesn't record that in the history.

Older tags aren't worth the trouble of digging up, but the history is in cvs and bugzilla going back to the perl-based release automation.
