Subject Re: how to make the SVN release process more robust
Date Mon, 05 Aug 2013 14:58:54 GMT
Hi Nathan,

No one should ever be committing to an SVN tag that already exists. Unless
the team has malicious committers? Or very clueless ones? In which case you
have much bigger problems...

In other words: isn't this more of a social issue?
