Doc clarification

Hello,

I am following the branching section and am a bit confused on the
following paragraph:

Creating a branch is very simple-you make a copy of the project in the
repository using the svn copy command. Subversion is not only able to
copy single files, but whole directories as well. In this case, you want
to make a copy of the /calc/trunk directory. Where should the new copy
live? Wherever you wish-it's a matter of project policy. Let's say that
your team has a policy of creating branches in the /calc/branches area
of the repository, and you want to name your branch my-calc-branch.
You'll want to create a new directory, /calc/branches/my-calc-branch,
which begins its life as a copy of /calc/trunk.

 

 

I have added to the repository a folder called /unique this morning

svn import C:/tmp_project file:///subversroot/unique -m "Initial Import"

 

Now when I read the branching stuff it states to make a copy of the
project in the repository using the svn copy command. Then a sentence
later it says make a copy of the /calc/trunk directory (which was in our
local check folder).

 

It would appear tht we want to create a copy in the repository, then
check that out ... but I am not sure.

 

Thanks,

Scott
