Hi Stefan,

Sorry for the late reply, but yesterday was *very* busy and today isn't any better.

Exactly, but only one other branch.

It's not missing, but different. The branch that is visible in the graph for trunk has a copyfrom url=/trunk. The branches that are not visible have a copyfrom url=/trunk/subproject.

So this is probably a PEBKAC. If I want to see the revgraph for subproject, I have to show the graph for /trunk/subproject and not for /trunk right? Somehow I was thinking that showing the graph for /trunk would show me all branches created below trunk.

But, and that's one thing I don't understand. I created a refactoring branch from subproject, so I have /branches/subrefactoring which was copied from /trunk/subproject in r3512 and deleted in r3567.

I open the repository browser in revision 3550, at which time /branches/subrefactoring exists.

If I show the graph for trunk, I don't see the existence of /branches/subrefactoring
If I show the graph for trunk/subproject, I see the existence of /branches/subrefactoring
I think I understood that now, because the copyfrom url has to match.

If I show the graph for branches/otherbranch, I don't see the existence of /branches/subrefactoring
If I show the graph for branches/subrefactoring , I see the existence of /branches/subrefactoring and of other temporary and still existing branches. (See attachment) Why that? Is this because they share the same copyfrom url (trunk/subproject)? Is this correct behaviour?
