Re: finding history of a tag creation

Tags are just directories in Subversion. You copy a URL to another
location under your "tag" directory, and it's a tag.

You can use "svn log" to find out who created the tag and from what URL:

$ svn log -v --stop-on-copy
http://subversion/dev/modules/adsuite/tags/REL/ADS-5.3.1b1
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r51242 | dweintraub | 2009-04-07 15:26:33 -0400 (Tue, 07 Apr 2009) | 2 lines
Changed paths:
   A /modules/adsuite/tags/REL/ADS-5.3.1b1 (from
/modules/adsuite/tags/DEV/ADS-IB-21848-D-83:51241)

Creating release ADS-5.3.1b1 from ADS-IB-21848-D-83

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can see that dweintraub (me) created this tag, it was created on
April, 7, 2009, and it was created from another tag called
ADS-IB-21848-D-83). If I leave out the --stop-on-copy parameter, it
will list the entire commit history of this tag:

$ svn log -v http://subversion/dev/modules/adsuite/tags/REL/ADS-5.3.1b1
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r51242 | dweintraub | 2009-04-07 15:26:33 -0400 (Tue, 07 Apr 2009) | 2 lines
Changed paths:
   A /modules/adsuite/tags/REL/ADS-5.3.1b1 (from
/modules/adsuite/tags/DEV/ADS-IB-21848-D-83:51241)

Creating release ADS-5.3.1b1 from ADS-IB-21848-D-83

------------------------------------------------------------------------

/modules/adsuite/branches/ib-21848:51145)

Tagged ADS-IB-21848-D-83 by Hudson Build: Repository Revision: 51145.

ADS-3561
Found a better way with single root team script under update/migration scripts
code base: ib-21848
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, I can see that the ADS-IB-21848-D-83 tag was taken from revision
#51145 of the ib-21848 branch of my Adsuite project. This tag was
created by my continuous build system (I can see that by the svnant
user).

The next one is now starting to show the changes that took place on
the ib-21848 branch. If I keep this listing, I'd see all file changes
since I created my repository.

Is this what you're looking for?
