  • I agree, allowing tags to be mutable is silly, but has that actually been a problem for you in practice. I don't recall ever actually modifying the contents of stuff under a tag, and you can always revert it.

    As far as the checkout thing goes, that'd be annoying, but I've never done that either. When I want to make a tag I always operate directly on the repo URI:

    • I use, which is a lot like the merge tracking in svk.

      I don't really see the problem with tags. I don't edit them, and I don't ever check out from root, so I don't download any files I don't want.
