RE: removing a tag from the repository

In CVS we use the revision graph to follow problems fixed between
branches and the graphing utility in CVS works really well for this.
What we have seen in SVN is that the functionality is not the same, but
still with the number of build tags that we have it takes over an hour
to generate the graph. We were hoping that by removing some of the
internal build tags that we don't care about we can speed this up.

Plenty of investigation on this topic has shown us that SVN users don't
seem to use the graphing capabilities the way that we have in CVS and
would like to in SVN.

Out of curiosity, what do you use the revision graph for?
