TSVN has their own mailing list for questions specific to that software.

Branches and tags are nothing more than copies in Subversion. The
software makes no distinction between them. The only meaning is
applied by you, the user. Many (most?) Subversion users/admins use
the branch/tag naming convention simply to remain consistent with what
users are accustomed to with other version control systems.

If you haven't yet, have a look at the freely available Subversion
book at http://svnbook.org/
