"tags" folder confuses Subversion
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.
Has anyone else encountered this problem, and are there any workarounds? I've discovered that you can't rename the "tags" folder to (say) "tag" or "taglibs".

Reason: Found out that custom tag paths must start with WEB-INF/tags
