Re: Regression in merge - yank release 1.5.3? [was: svn commit: r33696 - branches/1.5.x]

I did not get the impression the bug was THAT bad. It sounds like you
are going by the wording of the backport proposal which makes it sound
like merge is completely broken. I am not against a 1.5.4 but I'd
like to hear from Paul. Perhaps we ought to just move up the 1.5.4
schedule so that it happens in early November?
