I'm trying to put together a quick script that will automatically grab  
the latest git sources and run the tests.  Just have a two questions.

One question is about winetest.exe itself - Is there any way to have  
it automatically fill in the Tag nam along the lines of "wine  
winetest /tag tagGoesHere"?

The other question isn't related to wine or winetest perse, but I'm  
trying to make the script generic so anyone can use it so i've got an  
"if the user has git, do blah, else use cvs" section.  (I'm on OS X  
and know all Xcode installs come with cvs, so figured it couldn't hurt  
to add in) Only problem here is that I'm not sure how (or if its  
possible) to have it pass the password in automatically from the  
script and log in.

Or should i just skip this part and echo something along the lines of  
"Please install git from $gitWebsite" for whatever reason (cvs isn't  
updated as often as git or something, not worth the time, etc)?
