 How to I create a tag only for the changed files?

It can be done, but it's not clear that there's any good reason to do it.

To do it, you can create a WC containing only the changed files, then copy
it to the tag location. That can be done fairly easily by a script. Or you
could use a similar script to copy each changed file directly to its target
location in the repository. (But that would commit each changed file

But usually there is no reason to do this -- given how Subversion does
copies, it actually takes *less* space in the repository to copy a single
rev of a large source tree than to copy three or five individual files.
(Subversion represents a copied tree by a single data item.)

Note that creating a tag containing only the changed files provides no way
to represent the deletion of a file, but creating a tag containing the
entire current source tree naturally represents the deletion of a file.
