In subversion the usual convention is that tags are never changed
after the copy that creates them. That is, they become human-friendly
names for a single revision. If you are following that convention,
then you should delete the tag if it was not what you intended so you
can reuse that tag name. However, changes tend to be ongoing so you
may want to name your tags with some version numbering scheme - in
which case you might create a newer tag later and ignore earlier
versions. Copies are cheap in subversion and it doesn't hurt to have
extra tags as long as the names are not confusing.
