ok. thanks.

I thought I could make use of the presumed features to compare tags
which are handled as 'svn copy's. In many cases, I intended to use
this feature to easily get the difference between tags. But, if I
correctly understood, I have to run

    svn checkout $REPOS/tags/version1
    svn checkout $REPOS/tags/version2
    diff -r --exclude='.svn' version1 version2
