I use Subversion a lot – but today I’ve learned something new:
You can easily find the “base” revision of a branch or a tag (i.e. the revision in which the branch or tag was created) by issuing the following command:
svn log -v --stop-on-copy http://glista.googlecode.com/svn/branches/feature-reminders
The last revision you see in the log (in this case from one of my own Glista project’s branches) is the revision the
svn copy command was issued on, i.e. the branch was made.
This can then be used when merging the same branch back into trunk.
