Making a branch

From: <Steve.Nelson_at_uk.delarue.com>

I have a repo set up as follows:

/devrep/trunk - contains several hundred individual programs
/devrep/branches - contains directories for trouble tickets requesting
changes to trunk, which are merged back into trunk when finished

It isn't convenient/possible to have subdirectories per program in
trunk, or even functional groupings, so when a ticket is raised
requesting changes to be made to, eg, half a dozen programs in trunk,
the process is to create a branch with the name of the ticket, and copy
the programs over.

What's the best way to do this? I don't want every developer to have to
have a complete copy of the whole repo, but it seems I can't do a remote
creation of a branch without a working copy.

What would the procedure be to create the subdirectory and move the
files over?
