Thanks for your reply.
I think the most important use of this will be to figure out what has
changed between two baselines i.e. changes between two tags
Say for example I baseline my requirements/ design and code at a point
of time and do a release. Before the next release I would like to be
able to create a report of what all has changed since the previous tag
in my application. (note: dates do not work for me so I need to rely on
This could be at a repository level or more granular at a file level. In
the past I have used the cvs log -rtag1::tag2 (along with some custom
parsing) to figure this out for my projects. This report used to include
list of files that have been added/ modified/ deleted along with details
of what versions were checked in with what comments).
However, I am struggling with how I can do that in SVN.

It's not [currently] possible in Subversion. CVS is file-centric, in
information about a particular file is stored in a single place in
Subversion is more repository-centric, in that a given revision is
collection of all files at a point in time (whether you are talking
HEAD or any branch or tag revision).
I know that there are plans to support copy-to (where was this file
during it's lifetime), which will be the other side of copy-from
file originally come from). However, this is strictly a 2.0 issue
the incompatible database changes), so you are talking about a while.
Perhaps if you told us /why/ you need to know this information, we can
other ways to handle it.

That's a GUI feature; strictly speaking it is implemented by using
parsing the output. And again, since Subversion does not currently
of tracking when a file is copied to a tag or branch, it is not
dummy up a complete analogue of this feature.
