I agree with John. Also, I do not understand why you (Sylvain) want to
pick files from different revisions of the project. I've never heard of
this practice and don't understand the benefit you gain. To me, any
particular revision should represent exactly what you need to build for
a successful deployment. When I need to make changes specific for a
particular deployment scenario, I create a branch, make those changes,
and deploy from there. More than likely, this is a QA or release branch
anyway, so it needs to be maintained in isolation for at least a while,
then retired.
