[Subclipse-users] Merging from the tip of a branch into trunk

This might belong in the SVN mailling list, but I figured that my
question was so specific to the UI, it could go here. I'm trying to
figure out how to merge a single file from the TIP of a branch back into
the trunk. In CVS, all I would do is just that: merge from branch to
HEAD. I do remember that some "base tag" was automatically filled or
something. In Subclipse/SVN however, I don't know how to do this without
looking up the revision number of the specific change which seems really
inefficient to me. There doesn't seem to be any notion of a branch's TIP
in SVN. Is there no way to specify the tip or base of a branch without a
specific revision number? What's the best way to locate that revision
number when the branch was created assuming there is no way?

I'm new to SVN and this might be a rookie mis-understanding about merging.

Be gentle,
Bradley
