Any respins happen in the time period when the tarballs are available to us packagers, but not the general public (in principle...

Svn doesn't force different handling for trunk/branches/tags but the usual convention is that you mostly expect to be working on a changing head revision in the trunk/branches trees and normally wouldn't specify a revision number, but the copies in tags (by convention only) never have additional commits and exist only to give an arbitrary name to a frozen version without having to deal with the repository revision number. If you are committing to something called a tag in svn, it is at best unexpected behavior. A more typical process would be to have created a pre-release branch for the final work and to make tag copies with unique names for any snapshots that you want to be able to reproduce later, including your final release.
