Re: Sourcesafe user needs primer on branching source control

Turns out, that document isn't what I'm looking for. It was
interesting, and I stumbled across something similar last night. But
it's still too high-level. It doesn't help with my, "why do I have
these directories?" question

...Later, after a few more tests...

Ah, okay, the light bulb begins to flicker dimly. I was checking out
from too high in the repository tree. I was polluting my working copy
with the trunk and branch directories. I'm not sure I really understand
the need for a separate trunk directory in the repository, yet, but I've
gone ahead and started out with that. We'll see where that leads me.
