automatically updating a branch

hi

i have a feeling i have overlooked something, so i need advice on this
scenario:

we have two branches called Mainline and Maintain

everytime we built and deploy our Mainline branch to our production
machines we will automatically need to update the Maintain branch to
consist of an exact snapshot of that Mainline branch just deployed.

so that the HEAD versions in either branch after such a production build
will be identical.

this could easily involve deletions, renames, added files and so on.

current solution
----------------

the easiest by far seems to be these steps

1) delete the entire Maintain branch
2) copy mainline to new freshly created maintain

the problem with this procedure is the log history is now gone in the
Maintain branch

anyone with a better idea ?

thanks
./allan
