Re: remove a checked out directory

Indeed I use the trunc/branches/tags architecture for
new projects. But my need is more configuration. I
appreciate the powerfull "copy" fonction, but it
creates branches, so cannot be use for configuration
across the branches. I can't flag "i386" a whole
directory then "ppc" another (like it can be done
trough properties) and ask something like
svn checkout svn://host/proj/branches/v1.2 -flag ppc
to get only the directories/files flagged "ppc" (this
flag being associated to the directory independently
of the copies made (or versions)).
So my only solution is to specify a "view" ppc who
countains all the leaves files and checkout them
individually to get my ppc configuration
Thanks for your time Ryan, I had a way to do it now
even if it's costly.
