Re: can I use svn:externals instead of svn copy to create a tag?

I already have a pre-commit hook that just does this. You can set an
"add-only" parameter which allows you to copy files into that
directory, but not modify files in that directory.

Take a look at it: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/433257/hooks.zip.
