OK. I have to contact the server. Can you explain how this is done, please ? I looked at svntree, but it seems to only look at "local" repositories (which mine is, but might not be).

I'm amenable to changing the workflow to use /tags/ but am a bit confused ? Why /tags/ ? It's just an arbitrary name, just as /release/ is. I'm using /tags/ for such things as "this is the one where we tried to correct such-and-such" for the beta testing people.

Ah, I note that you said "tag" singular. Is there a specific tagging mechanism in (T)SVN, as distinct from a plain cheap copy to another branch.

As I have to contact the server, I'm planning on doing this once, at checkout and if the revision number (at build time) still matches this (and has no local mods and is not mixedrev), then I will use the pre-got release number.
