Sorry, responded directly to Gary instead of the list...

Thanks. Right now I'm exploring how we're going manage the process in
SVN. If you think this approach will cause extra work, do you have a
suggestion on less VSSy and more SVNy solution?

The svn mkdir command takes a URL, so you can create the releaseNumber
directory in the repository directly, not that creating it locally and
checking it in is that much work.

Note that you'll need to do a bit of scripting work to filter the svn
log. Furthermore, you may be setting yourselves up for multiple merges
if each ticket is getting its own branch. I'm not sure that you aren't
better off keeping this information in your ticket tracking system
instead, or even writing a checkin script that does the correlation.
