Good advice, though

1. I would leave the decision to the release manager.
Whatever steps are easier. It is the result (release) that matters.

Whether or not several e-mails are wasted, I do not really care.

2. URL -> URL copy in subversion is easy.

WC -> URL copy in subversion is a bit more risky operation.

If you perform checkout or update before applying your changes, you
are safe.  But if your WC  has mixed revisions,  certain trouble
happens.

(Summarizing, in this particular case it is likely to succeed, but in
general sense it has caveats).

3. There already are "tag.bat"/"tag.sh" scripts that perform URL -> URL copy.

Best regards,
Konstantin Kolinko
