Re: Subversion - Labeling

I believe by labeling its mean to give the same property to many files so
later on you can pull all the files by that property. I believe svn
properties are not searchable.

I see tags can be used for that but if I change one file in that label, I
would just like to label its latest version and have it included in the pull
by that label.

Can i use tags for that behavior also. Basically. can I update a file in the
main trunk, and easily have it used by the tag? Without much intervention
from my part?
