mod_dav_svn: copy requires merge?

Hi there:

We have a subversion setup here with the
standard /trunk, /branches, /tags.

In order to insure that tags don't get modified after commit, we have,
via apache config, limited the HTTP commands that can be applied to
the /tags to the following:


This works just fine unless you're trying to create another tag from a

svn cp https://svn/repos/software/tags/tag1

This fails because of the following (excerpted from apache logs): - someuser [23/Jul/2007:12:12:02 -0400]
"MERGE /repos/software/tags/ HTTP/1.1" 403 523

If I open up /tags for MERGE, then I won't be able to ensure that tags
remain inviolate.

Why do I see a merge here at all? The "COPY" I understand... Is there a
way around this?
