RE: Is a heirarchy of braches possible ?

OK. Understood.

Now, there seems to be an issue with creating a branch like this.

If I type:

        svn copy http://repos/mainProj/trunk

(Yes, it is an extreme example)
I get:
svn: PROPFIND request failed on
svn: '/mainProj/!svn/bc/182/branches/developer1' path not found

So, I tried making the directory in a working copy and committing it.
After that, the command worked.

Is this expected or is there a way to do this in one single step ?

Thanks for the quick answer. I have a team of developers screaming at
me for this.

Sure, whatever you want. Subversion doesn't care. They're all just

Just make sure everyone understands the hierarchy. Humans are the ones
that choose the URLs to compare when doing merges, so as long as your
users know where their branches are, this shouldn't pose any problems.
