IIUC, any committer can create a sandbox by using the svn copy command. e.g.

svn copy https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/openjpa/trunk/

You can then merge back from the sandbox (I'm not really able to give you details here...)

If this doesn't work for you, I'll be happy to give it a try. Let me know.

Subject: Re: Creating sandbox branches

Still looking for some response to this request...  Looking at other
incubator projects, some are using "sandbox", some are using
others don't seem to have an alternate folder for misc development
branches.  I would create the folders if I had the proper
authority.  Who
does have the authority?  And, when we find that person, what
should we have
them create?

We already have "site" and "trunk". I think to be consistent with svn
practices, we should have a "branches" and "tags" folder at a
minimum.  If
we want to keep "branches" pristine for real versions of
OpenJPA, then we
should also create a "sandbox" folder to house any sandbox development

You've probably noticed that I attempted to create a branch for the
OPENJPA-24 work (I've been busy with a conference and some
of Abe's changes
were starting to overlap..).  But, when I attempted to
create this branch in
a "branches" subdirectory, I got an authentication error
with creating the
directory.  As you probably noticed, I was allowed to
create the OPENJPA-24
branch at the root level (same level as trunk), but I
didn't think that was
appropriate.  (I deleted that one.)

So, what's the scoop with sandbox branches?  Should we be
allowed to use
these?  I hope so, since this provides a nice way of sharing and
collaborating on changes that are bigger than a breadbox.
If we agree,
could someone with enough authority create the branches
folder so that we
have a place to put them?
