So to tell you what I guess you need to know: we have one big project,
let's call it "mathos" for the example sake. So we have
http://...../trunk/mathos with a complex subdivision under this (a
large tree here). This is the main library that is shared by all
(developers, subjects,...). When a new project is started, it will
share some of the code from the main library (not all) plus some
specific code (usually in mathos/studies/project/...).
What I want to do is when I release a version of a project
(trunk/mathos/studies/project/...), I want to tag this PLUS the code
from the main (trunk/mathos/shared/whatever...). I am able to know
exactly what code is impacted by the release (
