This plugin performs subversion tagging (technically speaking svn copy) on successful build. This is useful when you want to access the stable codebase.

How tagging works?

  1. Read Subversion authentication information from Hudson's Subversion SCM configuration.
  2. Delete the existing tag if exists.
  3. Perform URL to URL svn copy.

Please note that svn copy is cheap because it doesn't duplicate file contents when not necessary. URL to URL copy is also fast because there is no data transfer from Hudson to Subversion, unlike maven scm plugin's "tag" goal.
The tag base URL must be created in advance.

Configuration
