Re: Seeing if a file is part of a tag

That's the use case! :)

As I mentioned in a previous email, we're looking to
see if the equivalent functionality from cvs is
possible in svn. In that, we want to see what
revisions of a file was included in various tags.

As Karl alludes, it's not always just finding the
different copies of the trunk, as tags are taken off
of branches as well.

But it is for the purpose of seeing if released code
(denoted via a tag) contains a specific revision of a
file, to determine if released code has or has not
known problems.

Karl said it better.

It sounds like it doesn't have it, and we can live
with that. I was just attempting to make sure that
there wasn't a way of getting at this information
easily, and I just wasn't aware.
