RE: Copying (branch/tag), dumping, and filtering repository contents

From: Bicking, David (HHoldings, IT) <David.Bicking_at_thehartford.com>

I'm reposting a question below, as nobody answered yet.

> As most of you know from my prior questions (still hoping for
> some more replies), I am dealing with repository load issues.
> I lack understanding about how the revision histories work,
> and the effect upon dump filters.
>
> What are the best practices in project structure management
> with respect to dumps and filters? I read and understand
> everything about the trunk, branches, and tags layout, but I
> am in the dark about dumping, filtering and loading.
>
> Given the standard layout, if I were to dump the repository
> and filter for a specific TAG, what would happen? Would I
> get a message about revisions not being found because they're
> in TRUNK? If not, would I get all the revisions right back
> to the initial ADD, which occurred in trunk? If not, is this
> considered a problem?
>
> For example, as a DotNet shop, we have several projects that
> are referenced together in "solutions". Several of those
> projects are effectively "shared" in that they are common
> libraries, but are maintained as source code references
> (rather than DLL references) to permit ongoing development.
> The application itself, "/Projects/AAA" has
> 3 or 4 projects that aren't shared.
>
> Eventually, we decide to start a new branch of the core
> project, so we create the branch of AAA
> (/Projects/AAA/Branches/R2"). We might not decide to branch
> the Common ("/Projects/Common") projects.
>
> So:
> /Projects/Common
> Trunk
> ------|---- Common1
> |---- Common2 ...
> Branches
> Tags
>
> /Projects/AAA
> Trunk
> Branches
> R2
> |----View
> |----Business
> |----DAL
> Tags
>
> The solution contains:
> MySln.sln
> Common1
> Common2
> View
> Business
> DAL
>
> Months go by, and we decide that we want to move R2 and
> associated Common projects into a new repository. How would
> I do that? For that matter, would we be able to maintain a
> Visual Studio solution that referenced two different SVN
> sources as shown above?
