So, do or don't you have a tag per release?

I think you probably just need to "svn merge -c1200" from the trunk
into your release branch. Then, if you use them, you can make a new
tag from the release branch.

How do you normally get changes from your trunk into your release
branch, if not by merging? Merging would be the usual way to do this.
