Well, I knew I could look at the log of the feature branch to find out what
revision I branched at, but having the svn:mergeinfo set by default would be
even quicker and more intuitive. If you have a very developed feature
branch, it could take a very long time to load the log and shift through it
simply to just find the last revision. Are you objecting to the change I am
suggesting? If so, why? Why would setting svn:mergeinfo to a default of
0-branchrevision be so bad?
