Thanks so much Rahul for your advice. I will definetelly keep this in
mind. For the time being, I had edited the header of some tar files and
basically made the files ver 1.1 as I had added them prior to creating
the branches. I had also inserted both branch Id's in the symbol
section and voila, I have the files available on the trunk + 2 branches
now. I might have lost a bit of info on them, but did not care much
since they were not released by QA as GA'd products, yet.
