There most certainly is tagging in SVN. Albeit the concept of tagging
in SVN is very different from CVS. The same is true for branches in
SVN as well. SVN just makes copies of everything because the SVN
developers made the assumption that disk space is cheap. This doesn't
mean that we can't continue to utilize tagging just the way we have
with the mileston releases so far.
