Tagging Policy Full & Patch Release

Hi All,

I would like to explain the tagging process I followed in CVS and would
much appreciate an alternative approach in Subversion.

When I do a full release of an application I tag the entire application
in CVS as Release_1_0_0
When I do a patch release of an application (ie 3 files) I tag the
entire application in CVS Release_1_0_1 and another tag Patch_1_0_1
containing ONLY the 3 files that will be released.

The rational behind this tagging policy is that I can re-create the
entire package based on Release_1_0_1 (if needed) and can apply only the
patch into production using Patch_1_0_1.

In Subversion I can create a full Release tag Release_1_0_1. But I don't
believe I can create a Patch_1_0_1 tag as described above. Or am I wrong
?

I would much appreciate your suggestion in this matter.

Thanks
Lakshman
