In princip is this correct. But after 3 months of developing for example
who could remember the exact revision number :-)
If you read the svn book: there is a example for the project layout:
trunk, tags, branches! A "tag" would be a perfect idea for a freaze. In
reality a tag in svn is nothing else than a copy you make from your
trunk into a dir under tags: for example /tags/freeze_v1.0 or whatever.
