Hi,

There's another problem too, if you ever want to update past that
revision in either direction, you will need to checkout that revision.

Let's suppose you are at release 100.

If you now do something like

svn mv foo foo_;svn ci -m ... ;svn mv foo_ Foo;svn ci -m

That will take you to release 102.

If you now try

svn up -r 100

That will fail. And if your colleague, who is still on release 100,
tried to

svn up -r 102

That will also fail.

        Regards, Ben A
