A category has to live in an archive, so I am guessing you mean you'd
like to move it into a new archive.

To do that, you "tag" it into a new archive.  See "tla tag --help".
Also, review the relevant sections of the tutorial.

Something like:
% tla archive-setup address@hidden/cat--branch--0
% tla tag address@hidden/cat--branch--0

I've done some of this and I've seen it work, but it just seems wrong somehow. I guess it's just that that doesn't move the whole category, but the single branch/version, right?

Either way, I got a big smile when I read this. It's so incredibly cool to be able to tag (for branching--just to satisfy my CVS baggage) such that the new tagged version doesn't require access to the original archive, yet keeps its history.

SPY                      My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
