SVN Merge branch with trunk
Posted on Saturday December 10, 2011 by Eric Potvin
Here's a quick article on how to merge your branch to your trunk assuming you already in your working copy (using
svn co and your current changes are committed (using
svn ci) in your branch.
Switch to the trunk
svn switch ssh://svnserver/myproject/trunk
Find the revision
In the branch directory, run:
svn log --stop-on-copy
This will display the changes that has been made to the point the branch was created. You will see something like:
Merging to the trunk
svn merge -rXXXX:YYYY ssh://svnserver/branch/myBranch
This will copy your new code from your working branch for the trunk.
Committing the changes
svn ci -m "MERGE branch to the trunk"
