Why check out from /main in the first place? You can check out
Only check out what you need.
Ideally, yes. But what if someone accidentally does an update of the root directory?
More realistically, the script that does the svn copy to create the new tag seems to cause a version of the newly copied "tag" to be instantiated in the local file system. Is there a way to tell svn to make a copy so I can tag something WITHOUT having a local version get checked out? Or whenever I want to make a tag, do I need to do svn copy and then delete the result from the file system?
