  • A trunk is the mainstream of development that is related to SVN, right from the beginning of the project till the end.
  • Branch is a copy of the code that is derived from a specific location within the trunk that can be used in order to apply major changes to the code while preserving the original integrity of the code.
  • A tag is a point in time on the trunk/ branch that one wishes to preserve. The process of baselining the code after it has been majorly released is known as Tag.
