Creating branches

From: <stephen.3.odonnell_at_bt.com>

Sorry for the probable silly question ...

My repository is like

Product
  Trunk/
     Dir1/
     Dir2/
  Branch/
    Rel_1.0
  Tags/

I want to create a branch of everything under but not including trunk in
branch/Rel_1.0. ie I want to achieve:

Product
  ...
  ...
  Branch
    Rel_1.0/
      Dir1/
      Dir2/
  ...

If I use svn copy -m "creating branch" svn://server/product/trunk
svn://server/product/branch/Rel_1.0 I get

Product
  ...
  ...
  Branch
    trunk
      Rel_1.0/
        Dir1/
        Dir2/

Using svn copy -m "creating branch" svn://server/product/trunk/*
svn://server/product/branch/Rel_1.0 fails with the error:

svn: Path 'svn://server/product/trunk/*' does not exist in revision 117

Can I easily do what I want? Does wildcard expansion not work? This is
on FC4 ...

Thanks,

Stephen.
