Subversion administration

I'd like to start using a version control system for my local private projects and chose Subversion. I develop software with Eclipse and will go with Subclipse for accessing the repository, commit code etc. This decision is mainly based on the fact that Subclipse and Subversion are out of the same hands.

This is only one part of the story, of course. What tools are out there to administrate (create, branch, tag etc...) the repository? I'm thinking of having the repository at my local hard drive, is there something like Tortoise SVN to manage the repository but without explorer integration and checkout capabilities? Should I go with Subversion SVN instead? As you might have guessed by now, I work with Windows.

Take a look at the svnkit website for a list of tools that use svnkit (formerly javasvn) - there may be something in there that meets your needs.

I use the command line for most interactions (i'm a linux user) but smartsvn is also useful sometimes.
