Re: nightly builds

I have about 10 active WC and about 20 which are not used (does not
have changes). TSVN is one of them with translation work. Would work
something like:
1. create temp folder and make fresh check out
2. export actual WC to it, or use xcopy
3. delete old WC folder
4. rename temp folder to WC name

If this can be done with one version (or needs old version too to
export, and getting some info) it can be done with simple batch.
What do you think?
