In response to my query in irc a few days ago, Dan Rall mentioned that
there are a few aspects of merge tracking that can be worked on in
parallel to the work that is currently being done. One of those items
I've decided to investigate what needs to be done to implement 'svn
blame' auditing support. For those unfamiliar with the problem, the use
case is simple. Quoting : "If you merge rN into a branch B, and rN
was committed by author A, then svn blame should show the changed lines
in B as last touched by A, even if the merge was committed by you and
you are not A. This must also work when merging a range of revisions
with different authors."
Before I begin, though. I would like to know if
a) Anybody else is currently working on this.
b) Anybody has any suggestions/recommendations as to where to begin.
If all goes well, I hope to be able to start posting patches in the next
couple of weeks.
