NICE !

Sorry, because it was in the book, and I've not read it entirely yet
(shame on me).

Thanks a lot to all the contributors on this list, you help me a lot :)
(Will try to make the firm contribute to SVN if I can at my small level).

Yes, it's called 'cherry picking', the arbitrary porting of a changeset from one branch ot another. Subversion does it fine. We do this all the time when working on subversion itself. A bug is fixed on the main trunk, then the changeset is backported to the current stable-release branch. It's very easy to do.

(CVS does this too, it's nothing earthshattering. I think it's a bit easier to do in Subversion, of course, because Subverison actually gives *names* to changesets, whereas CVS has to rely on incessant tagging to isolate changesets.)

Chapter 4 in the svn book is all about branching and merging, check it out.
