Don't let the terminology confuse you -- any time you specify a tag to
checkout or update, that tag becomes a stick tag on the checked out
files.  So you've almost certainly used sticky tags before, you just
didn't realize it.

The problem here is that you checked out a particular revision rather
than a branch.  You can only commit to a branch.  From what you've said,
you probably want to update to the rev6_3 branch, then you'll be able to
commit your changes.
