Re: tagging externals

I went back and repeated the process, this time creating a tag from
the HEAD revision in the repository.
I then checked out a WC of this tag and it appears that everything
worked correctly. At least there were no errors.

Apparently, when I created a tag from my trunk WC, it actually made
copies of the external files in the repository and also included the
same files as externals. Having both an actual copy and an external
for the same file is the source of the problem.
When I created the tag from the repository HEAD, the files are
included as externals only in the tag repository.

From this I see also that the new process is different from and better
than the manual procedure I described earlier.
The externals revision numbers are stored with the tag properties -
not actual copies of the files themselves.

The only problem I see now is that when creating a tag from the WC,
actual copies of the externals should not be added into the repo along
with the externals.

Thanks again.
