Hi there,

we are trying to figure out a way to create a branch of a sub-set of the
modules in our trunk.

For example, say we have (|trunk/mod1|, |trunk/mod2|, |trunk/mod3|,
|/mod4,| etc.)

and we want our branch to contain: branches/project1/(mod1, mod3, and mod4)

One way that we could do this is to svn copy trunk to branches/project1
and then svn del mod2. This would give us the project branch that we are
after however, we could run into issues down the road when we merge
branches/project1 back to trunk i.e., someone could accidentally delete
mod2 from the trunk if not paying attention.

Another scenario is to create project1 with an svn copy of trunk, then
checkout --depth empty branches/project1 and use update --set-depth
infinity mod1 mod3 mod4 to obtain the project1 workspace that we are
interested. Where this option falls down is that every time we create a
workspace it is now a two step process and we have to remember the mods
to include.

It would be nice if we could commit this workspace "Depth" property back
to our branch some how. Is there away of doing this?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
