hm that's a bit unclear. Importing doen't make the source folder a
working copy automatically. So either you left out the step of setting
up your working copy, or you created the tag by importing a second
The second would not establish the dependency tag<->trunc.

That part is easy (too) 8-)

You only need to branch/tag your trunc (either from the still
unchanged wc or directly in the repository) again to create your
branches/alan branch.
Then switch your working copy over to that branch (I think TSVN
provides that as an option in the branch/tag dialog) or checkout a new
wc from your branch.
After that just copy your changed files into the working copy,
TSVN-add/-delete as necessary and commit.
