IIRC this happened repeatedly with 1.0.  We deleted the tags/1.0 and  
made a new one, using, IIRC, svn cp.

As I mentioned in another post, I don't have a big problem with this  
since you don't lose any history by doing this, unlike cvs where  
moving tags destroys history.  It does make the history a bit hard to  
find however, and we might consider using "maven  build numbers" such  
as tags/1.1.1-3 for the third try to release an acceptable 1.1.1.   
I'd rather continue as we have been, deleting and recreating tags.   
I'm open to argument however :-)
