Subversion doesn't have a concept of tags or branches like CVS has.
The distinction between a trunk, tag or branch is made by naming
conventions of repository paths.

In order to find out that you are on a branch you could use
"svn log --stop-on-copy". The first log entry should indicate
if you have a newly created file/directory, a "normal" copy or
a branching/tagging operations, when your users create usefull
commit messages. But be carefull: when someone does a copy operation
on a branch, --stop-on-copy will terminate at this operation and
hide the real branching.

With best regards
