Thanks Josh. Yes I might, but I figured the Subversion users list was a better place to ask "what exactly is switch supposed to do".

As I read the SVN book, it is supposed to make your working copy look like a specified revision. It is described as a variant of update. When I make a change to a branch (as far as I can tell), the change seems to happen in both the branch and the trunk. This seems manifestly impossible, so I'm wondering if I really understand what switch is supposed to do.

Maybe I just need to do more experiments.

Regards, K.
