One approach is to use a working copy as a staging location. Do an
update to the revision or switch to the tag that you want to push to
production, then use rsync or something similar to update the production
  machine(s) to match the staging copy. Rsync will only copy the
changed parts and will copy under a temporary file name, renaming only
when complete, and the -C option will make it skip the .svn metadata as
well as cvs.
