This question may or may not have anything to do with the issue you
experienced, but from that description it sounds like the tag was not
created via a svn copy. Just curious whether that was true, and if so
how did you do it (just manually adding the tag dir?) and why?

It's been my experience that the "best practice" re: tags is to always
create them as copies of the associated release branch (or trunk if
not using branches), and essentially treat them as "read-only"
snapshots of what was released at any given point in time or release
version. The svn copy command makes this easy to do and also takes
advantage of subversion then being aware of that relationship and not
needing to store extra files, etc.

Not looking to start some sort of argument here; just curious if other
people are doing things differently and interested to learn why, for
my own education.

Great plugin, BTW.
