Just as an aside, if you want to be sure not to copy build or temp  
files around with this (and even if you do, they still won't get  
added to the branch just because of that), you can also use  
repository URLs instead of working copy paths, both for source and  
for target.

(If you use a repository URL for the target, the copy gets committed  
immediately, whereas if you use a working copy path as the target,  
you have a chance to fiddle around with the result before committing,  
which you must then do in addition.)

(If you forgot the repository URL - which I do all the time - you can  
glean it quickly from the file .svn/entries in any directory of the  
working copy. Look for the url="..." attribute of the first <entry/>  
element. Depending on where in the directory hierarchy you access  
this, you may have to trim off directories from the end, but you'll  
see that quickly. There's probably an svn command to do this in a  
more "recommended" way, but this is the way that has stuck quickly in  
my memory.)
