Hi Kamesh,

Sorry for my lack of understanding, but I don't quite understand your
expalnation :(

> Attempting to rollback svn merge -r 3:2 causes a conflict.
> Attempting to rollback svn merge -r 5:4 succeeds.

I would have thought, both the above scenarios whould have worked.
Why should a rollback from head work (-r 5:4) succeed, while a cherry
pick (-r 3:2) rollback fail.

Are you implying that it has to do with the newline ('\n') character and
how it is treated. If so please point me to a document or link that
explains the issue in detail.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks
Lakshman

Hi Lakshman,

I think the behavior is correct as the context(surrounding new lines
line4 and line5 in r5) of r3 has changed and hence it can not be reverse
merged without resolving the conflict as per the latest conflict.

With regards
Kamesh Jayachandran
