I'm not 100% sure whether we are saying the same, so let me rephrase:
The map file lets you select one specific version for each feature/plugin 
included in the build.

The example at contains:


meaning that this feature and its plugin are both checked out from the tag
"tags/v20070222". Of course, different plugins could be fetched from different
tags. If specifying a tag is not sufficient for your case, you might need the
"revision" keyword (which I haven't used - so I can't comment on that).

A real world map file using SVN can be found here:
(you might want to compare a few different versions of this map),
but note, that in our case omitting the tag attribute works only because
we use the patch from

Does any of this answer your question?
