It's true of all Commons components, and JMeter and HttpComponents.

That's irrelevant; it does not mean that 3rd parties have to build from the
SVN tag.
Merely that it should be possible to do so.

Indeed that's what the CI systems (Buildr, Continuum, Jenkins) do.
Well, they don't use a tag, but they still build from SVN.
Which is another reason why having the SVN details is useful - it's
possible to track the source of a snapshot build.
