Re: swapping trunk and branch

Ok running 1.6 now and repository upgraded. Must have been a recent RH

Somebody replied off-list and suggested I just manually recreate the changes
in trunk by comparing two working copies. This seemed slightly less painful
than merging and it worked. After that I just blew away the branch since
there were no changes in the branch I needed to keep (except the ones that
should have been in trunk).

Thanks all, guess I avoid having to learn merge for another day.
