RE: Retroactive branching. Folder roll-back.

Thanks for your reply.

1) I did all repository folder renaming using the Repo Browser.

Since this would not change the .svn metadata, I'm perplexed at how working folder Foo is associated with repository folder "Foo_Flarkize_Aborted".

2) It seems to me that the revert you suggested would not "roll back" the repository.

You probably know that, and meant that I should revert my WC of Foo to a "pre Flark" revision, and then commit that revision.

I had thought about doing as you suggested (before I even posted), but wanted to avoid having the repository contain "Flark to non-Flark" deltas.

I ended up doing as you suggested.


I restored my repository from a backup.

I then copied the Flark stuff to a branch.

I have effectively done that, after restoring my repository from a backup.

The repository now contains 1) A to B deltas (non-Flark to Flark), and 2) B to A deltas (Flark back to non-Flark).

It was essential for #1 (non-Flark to Flark deltas) to be in the repository, as I wanted to have a Flark branch.

I was hoping to avoid #2 (delta from Flark back to non-Flark) being in the repository (i.e., to somehow make the pre-Flark revision the head).

However, this is simple, and gives me a useful repository.
