Re: Branching Noob Question

For anyone that's interested, the problem was that the 3.5.5 directory
existed (althought it was empty) before the branch. I didn't realize
that the last directory of the destination URL had to be created. I'm
not sure why that is, but once I removed that directory and branched
again I got the results I wanted.
