RE: Subversion's branching as compared to other VCS tools

How confidential is the remark by Seapine when you put it into a email
sent to a public list? I'd be a little more careful in the future if I
were you.

BTW, you generally need to take what a competitor says about anything
with a grain of salt, particularly if it's a commercial product. You
need to evaluate the product for *your* needs, not theirs. You need to
understand if the tool satisfies the way you work, or if you are willing
to change the way you work to satisfy the tool. A lot of people don't
like the way Subversion uses a O(1) cheap copy directory operation for
tags and branches. I happen to love it. :-)

They all complain about missing features that are already fixed, but
branching remains an issue. I also received a confidential note from
Seapine
(Surround SCM) in which branching in Subversion is said to be a
disaster.
