Re: Svnmerge and svn 1.5.4 conflict problem - svn: Error reading spooled REPORT request response

Hi Sue,

This note is best sent to the svnmerge.py mailing list where svnmerge.py is
developed. The dev_at_subversion.tigris.org list is for discussions about the
development of Subversion, not its use.

Thanks,
Blair
