Hello,

I'm guessing you're trying to do a merge of all the revisions starting
from the revision when a directory was created?

The easiest way to do that is to use the 'svn log --stop-on-copy'
feature, which will end the log on the revision when the directory was
made or copied.

Also, just having that number in the info field would make it easy for
the first merge, but not any successive merges, say if you're working on
a release or feature branch and you do repeated merges,

Also, you may want to look at using svnmerge.py to do merging, it'll
make you're life much easier, at least till 1.5 comes out:
