A brief note on version control, labeling, and deployments

One thing I didn’t realize about CruiseControl.NET until recently was that it automatically labels your builds.  It uses a ... naming scheme.  The way this helps with deployments is that you can always look figure out what you’ve deployed to production in the past–as long as you only deploy labeled builds.

We still need to get our continuous integration setup working again, but in the interim, manual labeling of releases is still helpful.
