Re: why tagging?

A "copy" in Subversion does not cause the repository to get any
bigger. If you copy everything from /trunk to /tags/RELEASE_1_1_2b
then its still basically exactly the same size.

SVN is basically a big database, so you're just making a record of the
change, not duplicating the actual data.

Subject: why tagging?
To: users@subversion.tigris.org

I'm just thinking "why tagging". I know a tag in svn is sort of a copy
of a particular revision. But I don't want this happens, all I want is
to "mark" a particular revision as "something" (e.g. release 1.1.2b),
and the repo should be getting bigger in size which is unnecessary I
So am I wrong? Any ideas?
Thank you
