Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.
Asking developers in our office about tagging and branching in CVS and no two developers give the same answer.
Not only did the programmers not agree, most were not even sure how it was supposed to be done or what best practices are. Not a single developer I spoke with who had an idea of how to approach this was willing to say that there's was a good approach. When you have that much uncertaintly and confusion, it's a bad thing.
Google around and consult the policies of large Open Source projects. I first learned about branches from the BSDs. Even though I haven't used BSD for a long time, they still have some great policy documents out there.
Also, Karl Fogel's Open Source Development and CVS book had some good recommendations in it.
