Now that 2.0 is out, I want to quit tracking the svn "head" and

to stay "current" with only what's required.
I'm having a hard time getting my head to work the svn way, and I'm
also unsure of how wordpress release policy. Is there a way to do
svn does not have true tags, but there is a convention that allows
for the same functionality, with perhaps some added nicities.
to get a given tag, you checkout or export .../.../tags/<tagnumber>
so to get wordpress 2.0 from the repository, you do
svn export http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.0
Does that answer your question?
You can keep your installation up-to-date with neither SVN nor CVS:
It has the merit that it can run automatically on the server. The price to pay
