Re: isn't variance adjusted patching horribly dangerous?

       I have to be careful then. After experiencing third-party
       source maintenance with CVS, it looks like I trust version
       control systems too much. CVS 1.11.5 that I use doesn't work
       this way, it surely generates a conflict on merge. Will
       Subversion generate a conflict if the external diff is used? I
       really hope to hear "yes".

I'll speak out of turn here and give the answer as I understand it:
"Yes". (A core developer can correct me if I'm wrong.) I'm not too
clear on when or whether external vs. internal diff is used --- just
that I asked and got the answer that svn does not currently use v.a.p.

The dramatic title of the thread isn't intended as FUD about what svn
currently does.
