Not quite -- 'svn switch' is actually for switching a working copy
from one "line of development" to another. For example, switching
from trunk to a branch, or vice versa.

Steve, you need to learn how to use 'svn merge' as a means of adding
and subtracting changesets in a working copy. Here, I'm using
"changeset" synonymously with "revision". Sometimes, instead of using
'svn update' in that release working copy, you will want to use 'svn
merge'.

The book (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/) has details on this, so I
won't repeat them here. Good luck!
