Roo web projects contain a src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/tags folder by default. If you commit such a project, Subversion (or at least, the Subversive Eclipse plugin) wrongly assumes that the "tags" folder contains SVN tags. This manifests itself in two ways:
- in Eclipse's (or STS') "SVN Repositories" view, the above folder has the "flag" icon normally used for an SVN tags folder, not the normal "folder" icon shown for all other folders in the project.
- more important, whenever you commit an add/edit/delete to a file in that folder, SVN warns you that you are about to commit to a tag, which is normally a useful warning but spurious in this instance.
