OT: Subversion repository layout


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to get a nice repository structure happening and was
wondering what other people like to use.

I’m about ready to publish a rails app. This app now lives in
myapp/trunk

When this app goes live I will need to freeze it so I will copy
myapp/trunk to myapp/tags/release-1.0 (right?)

I also would like to get going on a new version which will break the
current version in many many ways. Where will I store this? I guess I
can use /myapp/branches/2.0 but what happens to myapp/trunk? And where
would I commit patches to version 1?

I’d strongly recommend Pragmatic Version Control with Subversion from
the PragBookshelf. Mike Roberts has done a brilliant job of covering
exactly these kind fo questions/recipes/usage scenarios rather than just
a man page for the client and server.

If you go for the PDF or combo, you could have inside 10 minutes (if the
PDF Gnomes aren’t too busy).

brother :slight_smile:
