Marking a Subversion tree with a label

Subversion Labels?

At this time, Subversion does NOT support simple labels.

This would be neat, but it simply isn't available.

What I usually want to do is mark all the files in a folder with a label to mark that point in time as a specific version. There is no feature in Subversion to do that.

There are many different things you can do to circumvent this problem.

svn merge, How does it work?

Whenever I try to merge, which does not happen very often, with the SVN source control system (i.e. Subversion), I have to test 20 different ways before I finally find the right way.

Now, I'm writing the solution that works for me.

The command I have to use is:

svn merge -r N:M file:///path/to/svn/file /destination/path

The path to the SVN file is the same as what you would use to check out that specific folder (file).

  • Apache
    Apache is the most well known Open Source Web Server.
  • Internet Explorer

    Internet Explorer is the browser offered by Microsoft to browse your file system and the Internet. It is based on the old free software called Mosaic. Now it is borrowing parts of other free software such as Konqueror. It first used Visual Basic as a language, now it supports Javascript very well too. It was a great browser in competition with Netscape 5.x from the start (trying to undermine the company named Netscape.)

  • scan

    In software, scanning means checking the content of memory or a disk for something. In hardware, you have scanners that read the colors on a piece of paper. In the C language, you have a function called sscan() (String Scan,) which I recommend you avoid, but is used to scan the content of a string.
