   You have to know the branch URL and the revision number. Then do
svn co -r 242 http://svn.example.org/svnroot/branch/
svn up -r 242

   Tags and branches in Subversion are just directories in the virtual SVN

   or view the repository via ViewVC. These are python tags:
http://svn.python.org/view/python/tags/ . Here is the tag for 2.4.2:

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
