Hi,

at the moment in TTSVN the _default_ when tagging/branching is to use
the HEAD revision of the repository. Now IMO this can be a bit tricky
or risky. Why is this the default ?

I am usually tagging my local working copy so I think this would be
the "better" default (at least for me :-)

Anyway I can think of situations where I want to tag, and in the
meantime someone else checks in a new revision on the server. I this
case I am even tagging a wrong version ! so question:

- why is tagging HEAD revision of repository the default in
TortoiseSVN ? (risky)
- could you supply an option to adapt the default (e.g. for personal
user perferences)

thanks,
Berni.
