Re: making branches, with one more directory level

Sounds like you have a structure like
 trunk/dir1
 trunk/dir2
 branches/
 tags/

Instead of having branches/newbranch/dir1, I'd flip the last two
components and do:

  trunk/dir1
  trunk/dir2
  branches/dir1/newbranch
  branches/dir1/1.2.x
  branches/dir2/0.9.x
  branches/dir2/0.10.x
  tags/dir1/1.2.1
  tags/dir2/0.9.3
  etc.

that way you only have to svn mkdir once for each dirN, not
everytime you branch.
