I am not a CMM expert, not sure there even is such a thing, but I have had
some exposure to it. CMM is about having a defined process and using it
to make improvements to the process. It does not prescribe any specific
process or tools or techniques. So your need for tags may be perfectly
valid for the process you want to implement, but you could still be
CMM-compliant without doing anything with tags. I am only pointing this
out for those that might be left with the impression that they could not
use Subversion with CMM.
