Why checkout the tags rather than just the current tag you're wanting?

$ mkdir ~/wc/tags
$ cd ~/wc/tags
$ svn co http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.5.0-rc7 1.5.0-rc_current

Note the working-copy name "1.5.0-rc_current"... Use "svn info" to check
which RC it refers to.

$ cd ~/wc/tags
$ svn switch http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.5.0-rc7 1.5.0-rc_current

Or something to that effect.

Having the tags folder checked out doesn't seem to buy you anything
but you now have an extra .svn folder that
holds the wrong state (from your perspective, svn is just doing as
it's told after all) for the RC you've switched to.
