RE: Re: Unable to tag multiple projects due to repository structure

There not distinct projects.There are projects which make up a logical unit. I use subversion along with continuous integration processes to build Eclipse plug-ins which constitute a particular product.
There could be for arguments sake 20-30 individual plugins needed for a particular product so it's good practice to tag or branch all the relevant source before a build with the same tag.
Previously with CVS I could tag the relevant projects en masse by taggine a CVS alias I had set up which represented those projects but with Subversion due to the oversight in giving each project its own structure I found I could not do that. By moving projects to a more logical structure as suggested in this thread, so all projects are in the same trunk, I can use the same strategy.
I have been using the Subversive Eclipse plug-in rather than the command line which makes the refactoring of the repository a lot easier. The only downside I found is that you can't perform svn move for multiple projects from the GUI. You have to do one at a time which can be a tedious process. Apart from that the move was smooth and the results were as expected.
I hope this of some help with others who may have suffered a similar predicament.
