Observation on tagging partial trees with different rev levels.

I am writing this in the hopes it may save others a few hours of
experimentation, or perhaps a discussion of things I have missed, or
even some reassurance that "sparse directories" will do what we want. If
it does, I will check it out after our current release. We have a few
scripts to manage the partial repository checkouts that work fine,
except for one issue.

The issue is how to create a tag of a partial tree with different rev
levels in different directories. See my definition of a partial
repository (tree) below.

First, IF all of the directories are at the same rev level, just tag the
whole repository. It is fast & cheap with no downside.

We have been using SVN for about a year and we getting close to our
first major product release using SVN, so, I finally had to figure it out.

My conclusion - you cannot. So, what to do? Checkout the whole tree.
Update the directories you want. Copy from WC to tag.

Checkout the whole tree:

svn checkout http://hibbert.rtviz.com/svn/VolumePro/trunk trunk

Now modify what you wish:

svn checkout -r {2008-10-26}
http://hibbert.rtviz.com/svn/VolumePro/trunk/sw/drivers trunk/sw/drivers

and now make a tag from the working copy:

svn cp trunk http://hibbert.rtviz.com/svn/VolumePro/tags/vli_4_1_0_20081031

And Bob's yer uncle!

So, for the sw library product, we only need (for example...)


We have one script which does the initial checkout and another script
that updates the tree - both use pysvn. Here is the update script:
