I've been doing exactly that, although through TortoiseSVN's Repo-man.
(Sorry, just hadda plug that film.) However, I went back and looked at
the logs (again, from Repo-Browse) for my tags, and the only log entry
is the one I made when creating the tag (e.g., "Tagged rev 1.26"). I
did press the "get all" button and still saw only that one log message.

(Probably a question for the TortoiseSVN list...) Is this what
TortoiseSVN's "Branch/Tag" feature does?

What's the best way to fix this? I suppose I'll have to determine what
revision corresponds to each tag, check out that revision, then use
"Branch/Tag" to actually create the tag?

Or maybe nothing's wrong. I can't test it right now (no access to the
repository) but maybe when I check out the tag, it pulls all of the log
entries for all of the files in the tag?

Sorry for all the newbie musing. I'm a hardware guy who has always
believed in the idea of revision control, but past experiences (um,
CVS?) have been frustrating. Subversions is easy enough for even a
hardware engineer to use!
