Subversion doesn't support different revision numbering for each
folders. That is not a bug but a feature.

When using Subversion revision numbers don't have such a static meaning
as on CVS. E.g.: r100 > r77 has the following meaning:
- r100 is newer than r77
- Probably there has been changed something between r100 and r77

It does *not* mean:
- On my folder structure have been performed 23 commits
- There has been changed something between r100 and r77

You should read the Subversion book.

And I will answer the next few question that you want to ask:

Q: How can I stick some tags to a certain reivision.
A: You can either copy the HEAD or a specific revision to a tags folder,
    like recommended in the SVNbook.

Q: I tried it but that creates a new revision?!
A: Yes. And this is the corected and expected behaviour.

Q: After copying to a tags folder, the revision numbers of all those
    tags get incremented although nothing got changed?!
A: Yes. Use "svn info" and look at the "Last Changed Rev:" field.

With best regards
