We use the SVN revision in our build so that it gets embedded in the application and it is easily visible from the GUI.
If we build production from a branch when HEAD=6910 then a week later we want a copy of production to a dev env this env wont have the same id as commits will have been made to trunk increasing the repo version.
I would like to specify an option to build a certain environment from the same revision that another env was built from.
Even if there are no changes on the branch I want the same revision number for sanitys sake.
This issue seems to imply that the feature is not available:
Is there a work around?
e.g. specify a build step that does it with a command line runner or an ant runner that svn updates to a specific version
Will that mess things up?
e.g. I could imagine it confusing the 'Changes included' view.
