SVN help


#1

Hi there,

I have a revision, #238 which I’ve since made changes to and committed
so I’m now on revision #240. I’m not happy with the direction that
I’ve gone since the two commits I’ve made, and I want #238 to be the
base. I wouldn’t mind keeping #240 around, which i could just do with
a local copy.

When I update to #238 and make changes to it, building off it which i
want to do, anytime I commit, i get a conflict with one of the files
being out of date. What can i do to make #238 the working build so I
can develop off of that?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
-A

I think you want to “branch”. I’m not sure of the exact syntax but you
should be able to checkout #238, branch it off and change it, then make
that branch the main and have #240 as a fork.

Thanks Matt, If anyone could provide an example of the branching
syntax, that would be helpful.

I think this should be able to help you:

I believe the caveat is that you should have your repository using the
recommended svn layout (ie “trunk” and “branches” etc).
