Speaking of merge tracking, have I missed the discussion of how the
support for merge properties in dumpfiles is going? Is that already
ready to go (both for dumping and loading)? I see the test file:

        .../mergetracking_data/basic-merge.dump

but I wanted to make sure that was the final form. There is only the
slight mention in notes/merge-tracking.txt, so I don't know if that has
been dealt with or is still in flux. I haven't been able to track the
development that much recently, unfortunately.

The reason I ask is that I will be working with a small team at OSCON to
try and get p42svn able to convert the complete Perl Perforce
repository, as a possible future backend for Perl (the git people are
very insistent that they have the better system). We want to be able to
use the Perforce "integrate" information to build up the SVN 1.5 merge
history during the conversion.

If any of the more experienced developers is available for some
consultation during OSCON, it would certainly be appreciated. *I'm*
still leaning towards Subversion as my preferred repository for Perl,
but I'm only one vote and the git people are pretty insistent. It
wouldn't be a bad thing for the Subversion project to get yet another
large project like Perl support (especially with the long, tortured
Perforce history cleanly ported).
