Re: SVN branch / merge best practice question

Why not? If you suggest to just rename the brunch - then the log will
also be valid - since there were no copying at all. It was the history
of the branch - i.e. "when it was called /branches/YYY, many things
happens. And then it was renamed and became /trunk".

I.e., this is actually no way to copy the log history. But on simple
renaming no copy at all is made.
