That's wrong. Your colleagues should _not_ omit mergeinfo property
changes from commits! If they omit these properties from commits,
they are not using Subversion as intended.
No, if Subversion modified svn:mergeinfo on *unrelated* files, his
colleagues ignore these files because Subversion didn't behave as

I agree that if totally unrelated files get their mergeinfo
modified, it's probably a bug.

IIRC there was no mention of that before in this thread, though.

Totally unrelated files\folders are not strictly modified but got their svn:mergeinfo deleted (but deletion is a modification too:-)). Nevertheless, very annoying and to me meaningless thingamabobs. Here is an example of a merge of one revision:
