RE: Re: changelog genneration between tags

I've been thinking about this a lot as of late. Would it be possible/practical to use a non-revisioned property for this kind of thing? I don't have Subversion up in a production environment, but I know it takes a hook to turn this functionality on. Plus, you'd want a hook to prevent duplicate properties, if that's even possible when applying a property. Plus making it read-only except for admins. Plus ...? But it seems like it might work. You'd just have to use --revprop and --rev together when you wanted to check out, export, etc.

Maybe?

You can't, really.

For branches, the "copy" style that Subversion uses is pretty
effective. But I'm beginning to think it is a fundamental mistake for
tags.

Tags are (conceptually) not copies; they are symbolic names for a
revision. CVS gets this right. What Subversion should do is to
define a mechanism for giving names to a given Subversion revision.
That would let you do what you want, and it would satisfy all uses of
tagging I have run into. By contrast, the tagging approach that
currently exists is awkward in some cases, and worse in others. I
haven't yet run into *any* situation where it felt natural.
