Bob Bobbinson asks: "I'm currently looking to convert my workplace's CVS repository over to Subversion. The main issue I'm having at the moment before I can commence a roll-out is how we are currently using tags, and sticky tags. The project is a website and we have two tags which are used to put changes from the main trunk live (internally, and externally). All development is committed to the main branch, and when we want a change to go live we move the two 'live' tags to that current version. The live servers are both sticky tagged to these tags, so when we run an update on these servers they will only update to the version that the 'live' tags refer to. Currently I haven't found a satisfactory way to replicate this in Subversion, as moving tags, and updating on separate servers seems to be quite kludgy i.e. need to remove current tagged version from tag, then copy from the main branch over to the tag, then update this on the live server. So I'm trying to look for an alternative way to implement this staggered releasing of code live, and maintaining the ability to see what versions of files constitute what is live. Any ideas?"
