It sounds like your asking to tag revision 1 of the repository,
right? Since in revision 2, the files a.c, b.c and c.c were not

To do this, your structure should have trunk, branches, tags at the
root, and everything should be moved into the trunk. To achieve this,
check out a working copy of the entire repository, go into it, and

svn mkdir trunk branches tags
svn mv doc trunk
svn mv src trunk
svn ci -m "adding trunk, branches, tags directories; moving existing
code into trunk"

It should now look like this:


Now you can delete this working copy. It was just for rearranging
things. Now check out a new working copy of trunk. This is what
you'll use to make changes to the project.

Now you would like to tag revision 1? Easy. You usually do it via
URLs. If $REPO is the URL of your repository, do this:

svn cp -r 1 $REPO/trunk $REPO/tags/rev_1

This copies the trunk as it existed in revision 1, to a new directory
in tags named "rev_1". You can give the tag any name you like.

Tags and branches in Subversion are not special entities. They're
just directories copied from elsewhere.
