Subject: Feature request: Branching without checkout

 

Could it be possible to implement support for branching without checking
out a working copy first, e.g. from the repository browser?

 

Currently, it seems like one have to check out trunk first, before
creating a branch. This can appear a bit unintuitive for new user. It
can also be slow when working on large repositories, and you only plan
to check out a sparse view from the branch. I'm perfectly aware that it
is simple to create a branch this way with the "svn copy" command, but
the ability to to the same from TortoiseSVN would make the operation
simpler and more intuitive.

 

Thanks in advance,

Fredrik Orderud

 

It's already there. Just right-drag the source folder within the
repo-browser, drop it where you want it, and then select the option to
copy and rename. Rename it per your branch name, put in your commit log
message, and you're done.
