continuing subversion/svnserve questions...

in looking through google/the 'subversion docs' ,i'm still at a loss as to
how to actually accomplish what i want to do...

i want to setup a system where one group of users will identify functions
that need to be created. each function will have it's own dir/file. as the
users identify a function, i envision them also creating the repository
directory for the function, and the initial template for the function within
the directory.

another group of users will then be responsible for building the functions,
and modifying the files within the repository file/directories in the
repository structure.

i also envision users who will act as testers of the functions. once the
test person verifies that the file/function works, i'd like for the test
person to be able to copy the file/function into a 'valid' directory. the
'valid' directory would basically be a storage of the working/complete

my question has to do with how this kind of environment should be setup. is
it possible within 'subversion' to actually 'tag' a file, or set a property
that can be used to denote that the given version of the file is 'good'? or
would it be better to set up a directory were i would just copy the 'working
files' to once they were verified? would this be a 'branch'?

it seems as though i'm making this a little more complex than it has to
be... with msoft vss, i could simply creae the different dirs, and move/copy
the underlying files as i needed to.. so i'm fairly certain that what i'm
trying to do is pretty straight-forward if i really understood

also, in using the tortise client, and reviewing test files in a test
repository, it appears that revisions are integers... does subversion using
integers exclusively, or is it possible to use the dot '.' format for
version/revision numbers, or am i confusing the role/usage of
revision/version numbers with subversion..

thanks for all/any pointers/comments/etc...

These questions are probably more appropriate for the TortoiseSVN mailing
list, but see inline...

You cannot get a single file, you always have to get a directory. You
specify the directory as part of the URL in the checkout.

Yes, but there are ways to find that out (see below)

Right-click on the desktop and choose "Repo-browser" from the Tortoise
menu. This gives you a way to browse through the repository without
checking out a working copy...
