Re: SVN: Branches Questions

Yes, sorry I will describe the process.

We are setup with one trunk that the developers use to
check in (unit tested) their changed code. A UAT TAG
is created each day to migrate the changes to UAT.
The issue is I do not know how we are going to get the
code that has been approved in UAT to QA because the
TAG that was created for QA contains approved and
unapproved code. I thought that a QA branch could be
used to handle the changes moving forward. Is there a
way to mark the approved code so that it can be
checked out for migration to QA and PROD?

Thank you,
Steve
