Re: Tags vs. labels

I don't understand why you'd want your users to get the latest tags when in
fact the latest tag is usually the latest HEAD state of the trunk?! A Tag
is supposed to be for a build/release engineer to preserve the pristine
state of a release or working build, should it be necessary to whip up a
build on the fly. And if you check out a tag, you will invite trouble as
you developers MUST remember to do an svn switch as to not check back into
the tag inadvertently or otherwise what's the purpose of a tag if its static
state is going to be changed? Why can't you use branching?

And if I want to label each and every commit, is it possible to "tag" any
working copy instead of committing to the trunk ? If it is possible, one
other question is : how others user will get the last "tagged" version,
instead of the one in the trunk ?
