I have a doubt in Mainline(trunk) of developement and branch.Im clear about the usage of trunk and branch and the concepts of branching and merging. But my doubt is , How it is represented by subversion? At one time, in my project, they didnt use the mainline (trunk) for development and its not updated at all(not used).For every release they are keeping on branching and merges between the branches. can we proceed like this? My question is, do we have any internal representation by subversion that this codebase is mainline(trunk)and this dir is branch... Also, please suggest me, whether at somepoint we should merge the branches to trunk or we can proceed with braching for new release from existing brach and then merging between branches?
