Thanks for the information Arthur,

I've downloaded 2.5.04 and will be trying it out today.  I've seen the changeset & bugnumber stuff mentioned in the past but I can't find much documentation about it other than a brief description of the commands in the manual.

Do you know if there are any pages describing how these features can be used in a bit more detail?  This could be a good long term solution for me, however in the short term my question still stands: is there a reliable way to completely delete branches?

Having reviewed our repository I probably only need about 5 branches and perhaps 200 tags so if possible it would make sense to do some housekeeping.  I have been investigating the admin -o <range> command but I don't know how easy it would be to automate across my whole repository.
