RE: Local copy incorrectly checks in to two different branches

All your message have come through. Sometimes it takes a few minutes
before newly entered messages show up in the google groups online
viewer. Just be patient. Your messages are getting through.


Now, I would go back to my original suggestion.


1. Rename your current working copy (WC).
2. Do a new checkout.
3. Copy changed from old WC to new one. You can use beyond compare
or similar tool to do this. Make sure not to copy any .svn folders or
4. Done.

Pulling my hair out here. Google Groups doesn't seem to be working
properly. Posting says it works but it's not, nor or my last visit time
updating so everything has become static.


Anyway, this is an attempt to reply for the 6th time to the topic I
started, but this time via e-mail instead of Google Groups

Unfortunately patching won't work as my copy was successfully committed,
it's just that half my changes went to the wrong branch.


Is it safe to export the old copy, then copy the exported files over the
new copy and then commit?
