Undefined control sequence setline setvline in Latex

I came across this error when I upgraded my Miktex package to 2.9.
I tried re-compiling by changing the sequence and eliminating the caps in the tag.
However, those did not work.

What the error basically is trying to say by "undefined control sequence" is that the tag is no longer supported. So to make my life simpler, I just removed the tags and recompiled the code. Everything worked like a charm.

The Subversion Mistake

Crux of this article:
  • Trunk is now what is in production.
  • Main development and bug fixes happen on numbered iteration branches (iteration-001, iteration-002, etc.)
  • Features happen on branches named after the feature. (foobranch, barbranch, etc)
  • Each iteration branch is based off of the previous iteration. If a checkin happens in iteration-001, it is merged into iteration-002. (ex: cd iteration-002; svn merge ^/branches/iteration-001 .)
  • No commits happen directly to trunk, only merges. For midweek releases, we cherry pick individual commits from an iteration branch to trunk. (ex: cd trunk; svn merge -c23423 ^/branches/iteration-001 .)
  • Feature branches are based off of an iteration.
