Re: revision numbering within branches

The revision numbers apply to the entire repository regardless of the
path (and branches/tags are just paths after all)

A revision is nothing much more than a change at a given point in time.

The revision at which a tag or branch was created can be found by
retrieving the log for the tag or branch folder and requesting that
the log stop-on-copy

svn log --quiet --stop-on-copy

or something like that...
