I'd suggest you have 2 working copies.

one checked out from your_svn_repo/project/trunk

The other checked out from your_svn_repo/branches/v2.1

Doing this really helped me keep things separated both visually and
mentally, especially when getting started with merging.

I see, thanks for the explanation. My working copy actually mirrors my
repository (which isn't very big to begin with, and I'm a solo developer):

/project/trunk -> c:\svn\project\trunk
/project/branches/v2.1 -> c:\svn\project\branches\v2.1

If I understand this correctly... I have only one working copy as a result
of a single checkout (at the root), so I believe there is nothing I need to
change with regard to the working copy. I should be able to work in the
branch, submit, and merge back to trunk, all in my single working copy.

Is that correct?

Thanks so much.
