RE: Branching question

Interesting... What if I need to go back 4 revisions... The current revision number is 195 and revision I need to get to is 162...

Do I need to so an "unmerge" for each revision, i.e. unmerge 195, unmerge 193, unmerge 191, and unmerge 187, which will get me to 162?

1. Create next_year_branch from revision 3.

2. On the trunk, unmerge (do a reverse merge) revisions 2 and 3. Refer
