Re: Recover a working copy

It's actually to see the copy forensically as it appeared on the original
system. For example, if the original programmer referred to it as 2.7, I'd
like to see that. I'm just curious if it can be done, one-time or not.

I can just copy the working copy to my local sandbox and see this fine, but
I'd like to move that to the repository if possible...
