Create a new branch that is a copy of an existing branch.
bzr branch FROM_LOCATION [TO_LOCATION]
If the TO_LOCATION is omitted, the last component of the FROM_LOCATION will be used. In other words, “branch ../foo/bar” will attempt to create ./bar. If the FROM_LOCATION has no / or path separator embedded, the TO_LOCATION is derived from the FROM_LOCATION by stripping a leading scheme or drive identifier, if any. For example, “branch lp:foo-bar” will attempt to create ./foo-bar.
To retrieve the branch as of a particular revision, supply the –revision parameter, as in “branch foo/bar -r 5”.
The synonyms ‘clone’ and ‘get’ for this command are deprecated.
