Thanks, everyone, for your rapid (as always) responses. Perrin, I had not previously had a reason to learn about tags. So I'll study up on them and see about implementing your suggestion.

Thanks again.

    Tags, branches, and the trunk are all the same to subversion; they are simply copies. To tag in subversion is to perform the same operation as creating a branch: svn copy. The difference between a tag and a branch is a semantic one. Branches are used for ongoing development. Tags are considered static snapshots.

    What is being suggested is that you create periodic snapshots of the trunk -- that way you don't have to remember the revision number of the previous time you merged in changes from the trunk; you simply remember the tag names.
