Easy. In Subversion, tags and branches are the same thing - it's just
a matter of convention. If you need to do minor releases for anything
you've already released, you just promote your release tag to a branch
and start checking in everything on that branch. You create it on-
demand, in other words, and if you never need to make a minor release
then that release tag just stays a tag.
You've yet to raise an issue which suggests anything but unfamiliarity
with the process, Rainer.
