Guten Tag Zé,

That's simply a matter of taste and what I said for customer/server
related hierarchies of tags fits perfectly well for branches which
develop towards e.g. one bigger feature.

That's your opinion but as you said before it's "not the point". The
point is that git is not capable of doing things the way I like and
Subversion not the way that you like.

And what about tags for nightly builds etc.?

Which ignores the important thing that the user should be able to
organize those points the way he likes. Or what's exactly what you are
criticizing on Subversion?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
