I think i answered him - i created the branch using TSVN using the branch/tag option.

> Yes, you have to have a working copy of the trunk, since that will be your merge target. You right click on your trunk working copy, and merge selecting the branch as the "FROM Url".

Ah - i do not have a copy of the trunk checked out. That seems kind of silly to me that I need to check out a whole other copy of the project just so i can merge in the changes. I assumed i could do all this directly within SVN itself rather then having to keep multiple copies of the project on my drive.

Is this a limitation with SVN itself? Or just how TSVN works?

Thanks for the help - i'll go check out a copy of the trunk and see if i can finally get this all sorted out.
