Don't understand this comment. It does not seem that intuitive:
If I modify and commit a file in the trunk root folder, I can tag straight
If I modify and commit a file in a sub-folder of the trunk, I have to update
before I can tag. Why?

I'm happy to contribute if I can. The TSVN repository does not contain the
'tools' folder which is mentioned in the ReadMe file, so I can't build the
target files. I can make text-only changes and produce a patch file and log
message for the XML source file if someone else is happy to check the

But I can still use "relocate" to re-anchor to the renamed root folder,
can't I? The particular issue that worries me is that if I do rename the
root folder in the repository, then (at present) I cannot extract previous
revisions. The data may still be in the repository, but if I can't extract
it, then it is effectively lost. I don't _want_ to rename root folders, but
I would like to know if I can recover from it if it happens by mistake.

BTW. There is a very minor buglet in the commit dialog. If I opt _not_ to
delete previous comments _and_ I have a minimum comment size enabled, after
cancelling and re-starting a commit I get the previous comments back, but
the "OK" button is disabled until I edit the recalled comment.
