Tags are much more powerful than revision numbers. Therefore I don't
use revision numbers in my tag names.

I prefer not to expose internal development revision numbers for just
this reason. There is another thread that just finished up discussing
revision numbers and reasons why not to depend on them (even in CVS!)

      Unclear: CVS and Subversion repository difference.

Gaining (or syncing with) revision control would be a good bug fix I
think. ;)

But it's a management decision. You could always pad your repository
with useless commits to get to the right version number. But that seems
silly to me.

Good luck,
