Re: Tagging/Branching Multiple Projects Simultaneously

So the expectation is that when one makes a tag, they would be tagging each
and every folder under "trunk"?

Perhaps we need a different type of layout for our repository, but that
methodology seems limited.

Consider the following project layout under "trunk" (this is an abbreviated
listing, in reality, this tree has dozens of projects)


In the example above, all the csi_ projects are common to all other programs
in our repository.
So, in the example above, if a person wishes to work on the "e6" program,
they must check out the csi_ projects and the e6_ projects from the
If they want to work on the "gems" program, they must check out the csi_
projects and the gems_ projects from the repository.
As you can see, all projects are stored at the root level of trunk for
convenience. So, as in CVS, I had envisioned selecting all the csi_ projects
and the e6_ projects in order to make a tag for the "e6" program.

I would consider making a patch for this, unless I'm misunderstanding a
basic premise in working with SVN (as I'm somewhat new to SVN, but an expert
in the CVS world).

>From a java/Subclipse perspective, when you select multiple folders (or
projects), you have access to those folder names and project names
programmatically, correct? If so, is it not just a matter of iterating those
items applying the tag using the metadata supplied by the user (i.e. the
base tags directory, and the tag name)? Today, you can select multiple
projects to execute the update command, for example.
