Re: tagging subset

John,

I agree that tagging will be instantaneous. The issue is more with the
retrivial of the tag. Since I tag everything, getting back to the
tagged version will require to go back on ALL files (modified) which
will not be fast since the network is not...
Plus the fact that I do not want this since I know exactly which files
are part of the release, and I may be working on other projects which
are "more advanced" (meaning I want to keep the HEAD version).

The simplest solution would be to separate each project into different
repositories, but those project share some code, and tagging across
SVN repositories is not possible.

So if I agree that tagging the whole repository is easy, I want to be
able to automatically switch to a subset of the repository, on demand
(no IBM buzz here :-) )
