Tags in Subversion are not like tags in CVS. In CVS, you "apply a tag
to a file." A tag is a property of a file. (Or so I've heard. I never
used CVS.) In Subversion, you copy the trunk (or the branch you're
working on) to a directory called tags. And that's it. Usually you'd
give each tag a new version number or date. But you could certainly
have a tag called "ready for beta" and simply delete it and recreate
it when you want to update it.

Why is merging not an option?
