Re: tag moving

The tags directory is simply a regular directory. You can copy it,
change it, or even delete it with the regular svn commands.

In CVS terms, you could be talking about two things:

* You have a tag REL1.0 over various versions of your files. However,
you decide that the versions tagged as REL1.0 isn't the right version
(maybe the release was pulled at the last minute). In this case,
simply delete the tag directory REL1.0 and recreate it by copying the
correct version of the release..

* You have a tag REL1.0 over various versions of your files.
Suddently, a developer comes with "one more change" that you want to
squeeze into your system. In this case, checkout the REL1.0 tag
directory, change the files, and commit your changes.
