Yes, now I understand what was happening. If I did a show log on the root
folder (somefolder) it would only have one revision history, however show
log on the 'base' folder inside has all the revision history. So I was
somewhat deceived, as I was expecting to see revision history on the root
folder ( the new folder ), but obviously will not, because it is a new
folder. So my steps did actuall get me the desired results for the base and
Thanks for everyone's input.
