Re: How do I tag a module in subversion?

Okay, so do you think this is the correct workaround?

"svn copy ...",
change to the new directory,
"svn propedit svn:externals .",
add the revision numbers,
"svn commit".

If this workaround is correct, perhaps it should be added to the
"Externals Definitions" chapter in the subversion book.

No, unfortunately, you've just perfectly described the one weakness in
svn:externals... it lacks the 'tagging' feature you want.
