[TSVN] Re: Confusing Branch dialog

Steve,

thank you for your long answer!

Yes, I finally did it that way. I just thought I could branch, edit a
file and then check in as one operation.

This confuses me. When I create a new branch I do not yet have a working
copy. Does that mean that TSVN checks out a new WC from the new branch,
or does it switch an existing WC to the branch?

> "Create the branch/tag directly on the server"

Ok, as I understand it from your description, this checkbox refers to
the source of the copy operation. When not setting this checkbox, then I
get the WC->URL copy operation. Wouldn't it be fair to display the WC
path instead the WC's URL in the FROM field? Or maybe use a radio buttons:
Source is: (o) URL at HEAD ( ) Working copy at current revision(s)

The docs say (chapter 4.16.1) that TSVN commits any changes in the
working copy.
- Are these changes commited into the new branch, or are they commited
to trunk before the branch?
- Are they committed even if it is a URL->URL copy?

I'm back, I finally branched with TSVN :-)
