[Subclipse-users] Branch screen: Confusing/dangerous defaults

From: Ben Huchison <benh_at_ibsglobalweb.com>

The Subclipse screen "Copy (Branch/Tag)" has a default value for the "to
URL" field of the trunk. As a result, if you are intending to create a
branch, but forget to change this field, you will copy into the trunk.

This just happended to me today and caused disruption to a large project

I suggest it should point to eg branches/<revision> by default, so if
you are careless you will not end up copying into the trunk.
