Hi Jon,

If, in your branch you can identify the commit revisions associated with
the feature you need to remove, then you can perform a reverse merge on
your trunk using the revision range from your branch.

checkout trunk to proj-trunk
cd proj-trunk
svn merge -r15:12 http://xxxx/svn/proj/branchA

Subject: An easy one for ya!

the way we manage our development is so that all work is done in
branches. Limited to 1 new feature or 1~6 fixes (depending on
size/scope) per branch.

Now lets say I merge in a branch that has 6 fixes in it, into our
Main(trunk). if it is decided to back out 1 of those features the only I
know how is to remove all the features that came with it, and then
resurrect the branch they came from.. remove the feature from that and
then re-merge the remaining features..

to avoid doing this I wonder, is it possible to generate a patch file
form the parent branch and generate a patch of the work done for a fix,
and then apply it to the main development in reverse? so it REMOVES what
the patch matches rather than adds?

suggestions/answers on a postcard!
