Re: Similating "label" feature in Subversion?

Hello David,

I am not sure I understand this specific issue, as you can always get
the specific "label" (r31).
Would svn export|co -r31 ... solve the problem?
Also in svn tags should not be modified as opposed to branches (you can
write scripts if needed).
Cheers,
