Right-click on a Project in your WC that has the subclipse:tags property
set and choose Create Branch/Tag.

That is the only time it can be done. Otherwise, you need to set the
property manually.

You cannot set a property against a URL. I also make tags this way. I
then manually update the projects that I tagged to set the property.

There is never a scenario where it will be propogated to the target
branch. What will be propogated is any properties that existed when the
branch was created, and that is all that it makes sense to propogate.
