Re: How to take back a revision from the trunk of a working copy?

Point Taken,

I'm sending this message to clarify my solution.

So rather than removing 227, I can only see one way to get my working
copy to keep its contents and commit them as 228.

So In short I'm in 226, made some changes, and I want this to be 228.

Svn is not letting me commit due to "Out of Date" messages.

The only solution I found was to copy the changes files out of the
working copy, update to the latest revision, copy the old files back
over the current working copy and commit.

All the merge -c stuff did not solve the issue.

Thanks for your efforts.
