Copy/Move branch with history + obliterate

21 November 2018 - 09:10 AM


To avoid certain old branches being backed up nightly I would like to move them away to a separate manually backed up depot - however ideally I need to keep their commit history too.

If I do a copy/move/integrate the new depot/branch is at revision one with no commit history in place, furthermore, so that old location wasn't still hidden and backed up I would need to obliterate it.

Is what I want possible?

Since the majority of our branches have been integrated/branched from earlier branches will obliterating a branch earlier in the chain upset the integrity of later branches?

Also, my understanding from the docs is because these branches have been integrated I'm not able to archive them?
