Deploying from a development to a review, staging and live server can be a real pain in the ass with drupal. You can write custom code in your modules and deploy the changes with CVS or SVN in the way you are used to. But what about the stuff you built through clicking and in drupal, you can click untill you drop. Suppose you have installed four cck types, a couple of taxonomy vocabularies and terms, a few roles and you made dummy content to ease your work during development. Is there a way to deploy these things?

I did some quick research on how to save taxonomy attached to your node. In my case I needed it in a page where I create 3 dummy nodes. This post explains how you can approach attaching several taxonomy terms (from different vocabulary) while calling node_save. You could avoid using this function and work with the taxonomy instead, but I prefer the node way.
