Re: Tagging externals with explicit revisions not working

Hi Stefan,

See my responses to your questions below:

* what are your externals? (property values)

   - Property: svn:externals
   - Value: http://URL_OF_REPOSITORY/SourceCode 'SourceCode Name'

* are the properties *identical* after the tagging?

   - Yes, the -r is not getting added into the value of the externals
   property in the tag.
   - I believe they should *not* be identical after tagging since we wanted
   to explicitly set revisions so -r should be added.

* are you tagging from a working copy?

   - No, I am tagging by going to TortoiseSVN > Show Log and selecting the
   entry that I want to tag (see below)

* are you tagging at HEAD revision?

   - First I update my working copy to the latest revision (including all
   externals which are pulled in).
   - Next I commit my changes - after my changes are checked in I go to
   TortoiseSVN > Show Log
   - In the log, I right click on the change I want to tag (my most recent)
   and hit Create branch/tag from this revision.
   - In the next window, the bubble is selected on 'Specific revision in
   - I then check all of the boxes to set the revisions explicitly

Thanks for the help,
