RE: Tags copy question

Won't I lose the history on the svn log if I do the svn cat? The
delete/commit/copy/commit works, but maybe what I want to do is svn
switch? I read the section on "complex" tags in the book. Will svn
switch still work after I've done the commit?

'svn copy' doesn't overwrite things. So delete/re-copy (either as two
commits), or do it all in a working copy and make a single commit (just
'svn cat' the correct version of the file on top of your working file
and commit.)
