Hi Mirek,

I have noticed every now and then you put a new ".tag 201x-yy" in the SVN. Can you explain the your policy for creating these tags?

Best regards,

Tom

Well, what I do there is perhaps not that nice (I mean, doing this on public svn), however in my job we have regular (well, mostly) 14 days release cycles, so these are tags to back those releases.

Good thing about these is that they are supposed to be stable, at least the stuff required for server backends. So in rare circumstances that a serious bug is found in such tag, fix is backported and tag updated/replaced (OK, that is not how tags are supposed to work, but whatever Wink

Hi,

Whatever the purpose of tags is supposed to be, I think using them for marking stable SVN versions is a very nice thing to do!

In fact, I was kind of hoping there was an idea like 'stable point in development' behind those tags.

Thanks for the info!

Tom
