We're talking specifically about using 'svn merge' to merge in
changes from a different repository, something that's not currently

I won't repeat the whole thread (if the web site search function
wasn't broken I'd give you the link), but it basically boils down
to this question: when merging in a revision that, in the source
repository, created a new file "file2" via a copy-with-history of
revision XXX of "file1", what revision YYY of "file1" in the
(different) target repository should the new "file2" in the target
repository be a copy of?
