Oh this is silly... I'll delete the line from Philip's original mail that's
causing the problem.

Hi there,

I tried this, I got a "U Makefile" message, but still no conflicts.

It managed to merge in some non-conflicting lines I had added to the
branched version ok. However the lines I added in right at the top of both
the branch and trunk versions of the file to try and cause a conflict are
nowhere to be seen - the "trunk" version seems to have taken priority for
the conflict.

Here's the order of events again:

I svn copy'd a branch
I then edited file "A" in that branch, changing the top line to read "clash
I then committed
I then edited the "A" file in the trunk, changing the top line to read
"conflict central"
I then committed
I then edited the "A" file in the branch, changing line 20 or so to read
"non-conflicting merge"
I then committed

I then svn merge -r branch_version:latest_version branch-version
trunk-version (local checked-out directories)

I am now trying to merge the branch back into the trunk, it is merging
"non-conflicting merge", but file "A"'s first line reads "conflict central".
In my mind I should get a conflict or the branches' changes are being
selectively ignored.

What am I not "getting"?

Q-Games, Dylan Cuthbert.
