True, the version is not known before the commit.

Short of getting an enhancement into SVN, the best you can do is to
create a tag by cloning the version you are tagging and naming it
using the version you are cloning. (see:

Although the version number of tag will not be the same as the version
of what you are taging, the content will be identical (in fact, SVN
clones are cheap; they merely reference what they are a clone of)

This could be done automatically in a post-commit hook, but you would
probably need some way to indicate you want this to be done.

However, if what you are looking for is merely a way to auto-generate
release numbers, you could use a script that maintains a "release.h"
file and creates the tag.

(my script, as written, requires CygWin be installed, so you can run
Bash scripts)

svn lock release.h
gawk "$2 ~ /RELEASE_NUM/ { $3 = $3 + 1; } { print > out; }"
out=release release.h
mv release release.h
svn commit release.h
RELEASE=`gawk "$@ ` /RELEASE_NUM/ { print $3 }"`
svn copy //server/repo/trunk //server/repo/tags/Release-1.$RELEASE
