It wouldn't matter if no one needed to be convinced. It has no bearing on
the process.

So, that's a "Yes, it does duplicate the entire repository (which can be
quite sizeable) in order to have multiple branches checked out
simultaneously."  Got it. Clearly a disadvantage.

So, for example, I would be able to have the following structure on my
local hard disk?


And be able to compile the trunk versions of Apache.NMS and
Apache.NMS.ActiveMQ alongside the 1.7.0 versions of Apache.NMS and 1.7.0
versions of Apache.NMS.ActiveMQ at the same time?  Also, in this situation,
the Apache.NMS.ActiveMQ 1.7.2 version imports the Apache.NMS 1.7.1 output

I guess I didn't explain the requirements clearly. Tagging is not the
solution.  This is about automatically injecting the revision of the source
code that was used to build the product.  For example, let's say the
Subversion repository is at revision number 18634.  I am building
Apache.NMS version 1.7.0.  When I run my build, it will automatically
produce an assembly with the embedded version number  That
last number can't be a hash.  If I were to commit any change at all (not
necessarily creating a tag or branch, just a change), then the repository
would increment to 18635.  If I build again, it would produce Apache.NMS Automatically.  This way there is no confusion as to what
exact revisions went into creating that assembly, and I have a reproducible

I understand that revision numbers in Git are SHA1 checksums. There is no
concept of a repository revision number as there is in Subversion. Many
suggestions are to use tagging, but tagging every single check-in to
achieve the same ability does not seem like the proper use of the tool.
