Yes, definitely. But there's more... imagine you have a deep hierarchy
filled with document files (not code). And every such document might
have lots of tags. How do I do that? Subversion tagging is designed for
tagging whole trees, not for the simple per-file labeling you can do
with CVS and ClearCase. CMM needs lots of tagging, and that tagging
needs to be manageable. This creates a problem with the current
subversion tagging model and its capabilities. Managing these tasks
sounds like a pain with subversion.
