The current names of tags in our repository are horrible and CVS-oriented. How would people feel if we renamed all the old tags to fit a new naming convention (/<project>/branches/<x.xx> and /<project>/tags/<x.xx>? With SVN you get all the info you need from the repository path, so there is no need to duplicate it in the tag name; gsdl/tags/2.75 looks better in the repository than gsdl/tags/gsdl-2_75-distribution, and is much easier to remember when you type it on the command line or in code. And if the name of working-copys are a concern, SVN allows you to call a working-copy anything you want, with the syntax 'svn co <url> working-copy-name'. This would be made clear in our wiki documentation.

Cheers,
Oran.

Hi Oran,

Thanks. It is possible to tag the 2.75 release with "" as well, to be consistent with the other releases?

Cheers,

Michael

I have tagged the 2.75 release and the 3.03 release in the repository. In other words, I have moved /*/branches/2.75 to /*/tags/2.75 and /*/branches/3.03 to /*/tags/3.03.  The commit messages all say 'tagging the 2.75 release'. Sorry about that, my mistake.

Cheers,
Oran.
