That's what I did. The problem is that I had a checked out working
copy of the older tag. When I then updated this copy with the now
new "current" tag it only updated the existing files. But there were
also new files in the new tag and they didn't get created in the
existing working copy. Only when I checked out anew I also got
the new files (don't know about deleted files, didn't test yet).

cvs update had a switch -d to create directories which were new
in the repo. But I couldn't find a similar switch for svn update.
Anyway, the new files were in an existing directory, so I would
have needed a flag to update also new files.

So: should it work to update and get new files or do I need to do a
new checkout? Updating from the trunk usually also gets new
files so it generally works fine.

Thanks

bye Fabi
