I see that Milamber has fixed that.

Looks like it can be made to work.

The procedure that worked for me was:

Update the file containing the $Revision keyword. It's not sufficient
to edit the text within the keywork field, as SVN does not consider
that to be an update. Probably the easiest would be to add the current
date as a comment to the version file.

The SVN tag can then be created using svn copy from the workspace.

See my test commit:

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=1153135&view=rev
Test tag / keyword creation

There's a bit more work still needed to incorporate this into the
JMeter build process.
For example, the keyword expansion produces "$Revision: 1153135 $",
but ideally we only want the revision number.

I can make a start on this.

I see Milamber has done that too.
