This plugin automatically performs subversion tagging (technically speaking svn copy) on successful build. This is useful when you want to access the stable codebase. The Subversion Plugin has support for manually tagging a particular build via Hudson's user interface. This plugin is for automatic tagging as part of the build.
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 Jenkins to Subversion, unlike maven scm plugin's "tag" goal.
When you specify a Subversion repository URL, starting with version 2.0 of the Subversion plugin, you are allowed to select credentials used for the checkout or update. This plugin obtains the same authentication information directly from the Subversion plugin, meaning it must have write access to the repository.
The default tag base URL and the template of tag comment can be specified. Those values are automatically populated when this plugin is enabled in the job's configuration.
You can customize the tag base URL and comment specific for the job. The default values specified at System configuration is populated as the default values when the plugin is enabled.
Please create an issue ticket and specify svn-tag as the sub-component when you find bugs, improvement ideas, or create a patch.
