Could you show us the structure of your repository, because I, for one,
completely fail to understand your problem.

For example, here is the structure of a typical repository...

/trunk
/tags
/tags/release1 (copied from trunk)
/tags/release1.1 (copied from branches/release1fixes)
/tags/release2 (copied from trunk)
/branches
/branches/release1fixes (copied from /tags/release1)
/branches/release2fixes (copied from /tags/release2)

In your case, where you want a personal, local tag of something under the
trunk, you might copy /trunk/scripts to /tags/chris/scriptsBeforeMyChanges.

How would that make other developers working on the trunk get a copy of
your tag?
