Re: SVN 1.5 cleared for takeoff

I would really hope that

* r31059, 31060, 31061, 31075, 31151
   Fix issue #3157, Merging a change from a path's natural history
   creates self-referential mergeinfo

will still be included for 1.5.0. The simple reason is that the
addressed problem introduces *irreversible* repository inconsistencies.
I'm stumbling across this quite frequently for our production repository
which we have already switched to RC5. It makes even short logs quite
lengthy and confusing.

As far as I understand there is consensus on that the self-referential
mergeinfo is not correct? In that case I think the risk that this fix
breaks something even *more* severe than this problem itself is quite low.

Best regards,
