hi,

when branching/tagging in subversion, you clone your trunk artifact to branches and tags folder. what is unclear to me is, whether and how i can reconstruct from the trunk where i tagged or branched things.

example: when retrieving history info from class A i want to see that A exists as branch artificat in .../branches/branchForA/projectForA.

i already branched a project but cannot retrieve this information in the history list (am using subclipse plugin). what is a bit weird is that there is already a meta-information column Tags which it is empty though respective artificats exist in another branch.

so it is possible to somehow retrieve this information or is svn doing a dump copy when branching/tagging without holding these kind of meta-info (which would be a step back in comparison to CVS)?

thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
