That check only shows a warning. Since Subversion doesn't know a fixed
tag, you're actually free to use any name instead of /tags/. We only
check for a path which has '/tags/' in it and then assume that this is a
tag. And since you should not commit to a tag, we show the warning.
This is only for user convenience. It can't be really 100% accurate.
