Hi, I've got a software product here that has 2 concurrent development branches going on. I'm personally working in branch #2 right now, but want to use some of the enhancements that have been added to a few files in branch #1. Is there a proper process / method to do this? I realize I can either: a) simply copy the updates files from branch 1 that I need to my branch and work from there b) update (sticky) for those particular files to branch 1 so that any updates would get the latest from that branch Is either way recommended? If I use option a) then when I merge the branches back into the trunk, I'm guaranteed to have conflicts. If I use option b, what happens for files that do not exist in my branch but have been added to branch #1? How would I do option b for that? Is there any way to make a sticky update on a specific file if it doesn't already exist in my branch? Furthermore, what happens when someone else checks out branch 2; they won't have the right file versions (since individual ones would require special updates from branch #1). Is there some better method to do something like this? Thanks! Eric
