Re: Tagging Conventions

I've found the common ClearCase convention to be useful in the other
environments I've used: tags are all UPPER CASE, branches are always lower
case. This is even more useful in Subversion, because it has no built-in
knowledge of branches and tags.

Customers generally don't get to see your tags and branches, so I wouldn't
let that drive your convention. Nor are the particular choices of words all
that important, so don't sweat it too much. Just design them to match your
process, specifically to make sure that you have unambiguous numeric
increments, and that different major states get different words. For things
that actually go to customers, you need a 1-1 mapping with whatever detailed
version scheme you have in your product.
