Tagging may be a "symbolic name" in CVS but the svn "tagged copy" idea

Remember here that SVN uses light copy - it is not a copy of the actual
repos at all - list a "link" very like cvs tags, when you think about it.

FUD. You can tag CVS without having a checkout. (Try cvs -H rtag.)
And SVN doesn't even HAVE tagging. It has copying, which contrary to
popular (SVN developer) belief, is NOT the same thing. A (non-branch)
tag is a symbolic name assigned to a particular state of the
repository (i.e., a changeset). It is not a copy.
Tagging and branching, when was the last time either occurred to E?
