RE: Re: Determining origin of branch

"svn log --stop-on-copy" does not behave as one would expect if you've
renamed an ancestor directory in the branch URL. "svn log
--stop-on-copy" stops at the revision in which the rename occurred
rather than at the revision in which you created the branch (the copy
revision).

This is just one of several problems that I've encountered from changing
the directory structure at an ancestor directory common to a branch
point and the trunk from which the branch was created. For example,
merge and diff operations fail for source branch URL at revision N if
the URL does not exist in revision N. This situation exists after you
rename an ancestor directory in the branch URL.

Question: "How do I find out which revision a branch was created?"
Answer: 'svn log -v --stop-on-copy branchURL'

This is a really common question. I'm adding this technique to chapter
4 in the book. It probably should also be a FAQ.
