RE: New User - Importing a project with active changes

Hi Jean-Marc,
I was going to ask for more details, You have to appreciate that svn/TSVN
isn't second nature to me (nor will it be for a while). However, Lorenz has
provided this. I think I know which way to go now. All is not lost if I get
it wrong, as I said in my original message, I'm starting from an empty
repository, so I can always delete it and start again!

My current plan:
copy my (release) files into the Current folder of a subdirectory organised
as
Current
Changes
Releases
Import the folder tree into the root repository.
Check out a working copy of the current folder
svn copy this wc into a releases/Version 1 & commit
svn copy this wc into a changes/Alan & commit
switch wc to changes/Alan
copy my modified (quite extensive) changes into this working copy

Now.. last question (for now)
Is there an SVN or TSVN command to migrate the changes into the repository
en bloc, or will I have to manually add the new files, and commit the
changed ones?

Regards .. Alan

And thanks all for your assistance.

You could checkout a (temporary) working copy of the entire repository
and add the branch files for developer X there. Then commit.

Repeat the process for developers Y, Z etc..

Then throw away that working copy and create a new (checkout) from
just the Current or the Changes (dev X) branch.
