Yeah I know that, but I want to mimick what CVS does, adapting it to SVN.

All I want is to not have (or see) the "trunk" directory at the root of
everything. So I would have a "tags" directory at the root, alongside
libs and project1. But I don't want this "tags" directory to come along
when I do a checkout on / because it's only when I want a specific tag
that I do a checkout on a given tag.
So if do this:

svn checkout http://server/svn/

I don't want to see the tags folder in my repository. But if I do this:

svn checkout http://server/svn/tags/release10/

I want to get whats in release10 in my new working copy.

Is this at all possible ?

Thanks for the help
Olivier
