[TSVN] Some issues we are running into

Well things were flying for our first month of implementation of
Subversion, TortoiseSVN and AnkhSVN VS plugin into our workflow. Good
ridance to VSS (but I am looking forward to TSFS if they can deliver).

We have encountered an issue with developing along the trunk and have
realised that this methodology may not be a good fit for us.We are
encountering many small projects being sent to production at different,
staggered and even shuffled stages, where initial release dates suffer
delays.

We believe now that the best way to handle this would be to create a branch
any time somebody starts a new project and let them do all their
development on that branch. Then get them to merge back to the stable trunk
at time their project is ready for prime-time.

The problem we are having directly atm is that we wish to branch off where
our current trunk/head development is to a branch so that we don't lose any
code, but then we also wish to take one of the previous branch/head's and
turn that into the mainline stable trunk/head that we can then further
merge back into.

If I get a working copy down using tortoise (r41) we cannot then make that
effectively become our trunk (> the previous trunk head of r100). When I
then tried to commit that r41 to the head of the repository I got an error
telling me that things were out of date and that I should do an update and
I got an error of 106-1 or something to that effect.

I am thinking that our main issue is that we have our entire web
application under source control but within that it is broken down into
many, many modules.

Any hints tips or pointers would be appreciated.

Regards,
