I am new to using subversion, trac and do not clearly understand how the wordpress plugin repository works. When committing WP Responder I put all the files in a directory called "trunk" and committed it to the server. It worked.
It may be useful to make previous versions of the plugin available for download. So I copied all the files from a previous version (4.9) as well as the current version (22.214.171.124) and placed it in the "tags" directory of the repository.
So tags had two directories: 4.9 and 126.96.36.199. The 188.8.131.52 had the same content as the trunk directory. When I did this the downloadable archive had only the php files directly under the trunk directory and not the sub directories that are part of plugin.
So I had to removed all the directories within the tags directory to restore it to the previous state.
What am I doing wrong? How can I make previous versions available for download?
