         First off is that subversion doesn't care if you modify the tag,
it doesn't know that it is "supposed to be" read-only. I'd either modify
the tag, or else copy the tag to a branch, and then modify it there, and
then make a new tag.
         The way I use subversion is that the trunk is pretty unstable, and
we work there until we get reasonably close to a release, and then almost
everyone "svn switch"es to the branch, and continues. Then we tag each
minor release, and continue in the same branch. So, we currently have:

1.3 is the trunk, and has an unknown release date, and probably compiles,
but there are probably GUI errors that no one has gotten around to fixing.

1.2 is our active branch

and recent tags are 1.2.0, 1.2.1, and 1.2.2 is coming out shortly.
