Right... and we are following the trunk / branch / tag convention for
source code and project-related documents like SRS / SDD / etc.
(we're following an iterative development model so there will be
several "releases" of the SRS / SDD / code / etc.).

Where I'm working now is company-wide policy and procedures documents
that won't change due to the iterative model (they may change, but
not due to the iterative model). So, I decided I didn't need the
trunk / branch / tag convention for that.

As you say, not related to the current problem anyway...

Yup, that's right... hence, trying to figure out what the #^$@ happened.

I sent an email to the IT group that administers the Subversion
server, trying to find out what version of Subversion they're
running, but haven't heard back yet.
