Re: newbie question re: tagging and maybe bad directory structure

I'n not sure what Tortoise does, but basically, creating a new tag is simply
copying it to the directory where you store tags. How and where you store
tags is really up to you.

In the command line, it would look something like this:

set URL=svn+ssh://deploy@www.getlookout.com/var/www/apps/lookout/repos
svn -m"My commit message" cp %URL%/trunk %URL%/tags/design1

(You don't have to create the environment variable, but I thought it might
make it a bit easier to see).

I believe in Tortoise, you specify the URL where you are copying from and
where you want to create your tag. It looks like you specified the root of
the repository for copying.
