Issue 2836

From: Troy Curtis Jr <troycurtisjr_at_gmail.com>

I've been keeping half an eye on the list and noticed that the 1.6 branch
was fast approaching, so I wanted to know if the 'block' feature of
merge-tracking had been addressed yet. Apparently not (
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2836). This is
definitely something I would have to have before upgrading and migrating all
of my merge info from svnmerge.py to the built-in merge. The "work around"
isn't, as in my case is does not remove the need for the svnmerge script,
therefore the main reason to migrate is gone!

The last message I saw was from Blair saying this was a pretty basic feature
that shouldn't have to wait until 1.6 (
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2007-07/0391.shtml)...well it's here! :)

Has anyone else thought any on this? If so perhaps we could pull together
some ideas. I realize it might be a little late for 1.6 at this point, but
I would really like to see the feature make it into Subversion. I might
even be willing/able to make the patch myself depending on the size of it
after implementation discussions.

It seems pretty straight-foward, but then again I haven't taken the time to
really look at the merge-tracking implementation and just how well it could
drop in place. What concerns do people see?

Just wanted to raise awareness of this to anyone that was interested.

Troy
