RE: Branching question

Hi Jeff,


Maybe you could

* Take a branch at revision 3, making revision 4
* Update the file to revision 1 and then commit that, meaning it
will now be at revision 5, but effectively the same as revision 1.


Hope you get it sorted,


Best regards,

Subject: Branching question



I have a question on branching.

I currently have a file, let's say foo.exe, checked into an svn
repository. My repository is set up with the typical trunk, branches,
and tags layout. The file foo.exe is checked into the trunk. foo.exe
has several revision against it, 1, 2, and 3 with 3 being the HEAD.

Here is the question, can I move revisions 2 and 3 into a branch and
make 1 the HEAD again? The powers at be do not want the changes that
are in revisions 2 and 3 until sometime next year, so they want revert
back to revision 1 as the HEAD. Is this possible or is there a
different way to do it...
