No. CVS tags must match what is actually released.

I think Peter's being a little over cautious. There have been psqlODBC
snapshots released without source releases right back to when Byron was
maintaining it years ago. They are 'official' project snapshots, built
for testing purposes by the primary copyright holders (PGDG) and
released onto the project site which hosts the source repository. AFAICR
I'm the only one who ever did release source tarballs with snapshots.

The easy way to be sure though, is to just zip up the source tree and
upload it with the binaries, or better yet, build a tarball on a Unix
box or in Msys and upload that.

Regards, Dave.
