Creating an SVN tag?
No, that's not the point at all. I don't even have write access to the 
SVN repo :-)

What I'm trying to solve is that need to orchestrate multiple builds 
based on a common revision number, picked from the HEAD revision at a 
given point in time.

What alternatives did you try?
What were the problems that got solved by writing down the SVN revision?

Yes, that might be solving the issue.
I'm hesitant to add yet another tool to the toolchain though.
I'm still struggling with Maven, a multitude of plugins, and repository 
manager knowledge. I think Jenkins might be the straw that will break 
the camel's back, so I'll be bookmarking that for a later date.

Hearing that an explicit revision will work does give me a working 
fallback strategy in case no other recommendations turn up. Thanks :-)
