Hi Jon,

Thanks for the quick answer answer will try this out. I still wonder if it would make sense or if it would be possible to have some kind of "Ignore for merge" functionality to be build into Tortoise, would probably be nice to have

Thanks,
Thomas

         He means that when you merge, you manually look through the list, or type "DONT MERGE" at the beginning of your commit message for web.config, and then when you merge, you look through the log, and instead of committing all revisions since the last merge, you skip any revisions that contain changes to that file, so then there won't ever be changes in web.config that get merged from branch to branch/trunk.
