RE: Re: I created a branch with the same name as an existing branch !

Sorry for not having being clear enough.

I used TortoiseSVN for Windows to create the branch. Here is what I did :

- From my local copy of the trunk, I invoked the 'branch/tag' menu of Tortoise.

- In the dialog box, I have to give the name of the branch to create. Instead of giving a new name, I gave a name of an already existing branch. The revision number was set to 'HEAD'. The from path was :
https://server/svn/foo/trunk
and the branch name was :
https://server/svn/foo/branches/my_new_branch

- I then clicked on 'OK' to create the branch and Tortoise reported that the branch was correctly created.
...then I realised that I made a mistake !

It would help immensely if you told us exactly what you did (preferably,
giving the commands), rather than just saying something vague like "I
created a branch with the same name as an existing branch".

Always, once you tell us what you actually did.
