Re: using dump/load for vendor branch

You may have a problem with operations that are based on
svn copy, because copies are from objects at a particular revision,
and that "copy from" revision is encoded in the dump. The
repository you are playing this into will almost certainly have
its own revision history, and you will get errors to the effect
that "object does not exist in that revision".

I encountered this problem when I was trying to port my project
from its initial repository, where I made kind of mess of it, into
a new repository. What I discovered is that if you will do the copy
operations manually, you can then replay most of the transactions.
For instance, I could replay transactions up to the point where I
created a branch. I would need to create the branch manually in
the target repos; then I could replay subsequent transactions from
the dump.

This may be too much trouble for you.

Regards,
Walden Mathews
