Different Subversion Changeset number


Is there a way to receive a different changeset number than just the root? That is, I have two different branches of the same project like this:


main development


The HEAD version number of Trunk is 41, while the HEAD version number of main development is 37 and 41 for test. Is there a way to pull the version number from a specific directory in subversion so that my Main Development and Test configurations don't always have the same build number?

Let me know if I'm not clear.

Hello Matt,

In subversion's approach, it uses a changeset number as a mark for the whole repository, so when TeamCity is asked for changeset number,
it returns this global value.

For your build number, you can use a combination of VCS revision number + incremental counter provided by TeamCity.
What's wrong with having global reference to repository version in your build numbers?

Kind regards,
