Re: Suspending commits

I highly recommend buying the book "Pragmatic Version Control Using
Subversion" (or visiting a library that has it or reading it in the
bookstore with a big cup of coffee/tea). The section on release
branches describes a solution to your exact problem.

Essentially, as you near release, you branch the code to a release
branch and restrict the number of developers working on that branch.
The remainder of your development staff can be happily committing code
to the trunk.

When the release itself is made, you can create a tag from the release
branch with the release number. Changes made on the release branch
can be merged back into the trunk.
