Re: Merging or moving from "trunk" to a branch.

Maybe then I don't understand a revision....

I have a Release Branch.

Developers are committing changes to trunk, but an immediate bug fix
needs to be moved from trunk to the release branch. I need to move
that specific file with the specific revision number to the release
branch (the revision number helps me keep track of what changes were
made where and by whom... I guess that's the purpose of verison

I don't see how moving a file with a revision associated to it to
another branch violates *core* principles? The revision hasn't
changed. As a matter of fact, I DON'T want the revision number on the
file to change.
