julianf is trying to prepare a presentation to business users of svn,
with the title "The future of merging", for the svn conference in Berlin
on 10-13 June.

/me wonders what are the main issues, concerns and developments for svn
merging.

  * "True Renames" - properly merging renames. This is the Big One.

  * Speed - e.g. most merges don't do much and so should be nearly
instant.

  * Conflicts (especially tree conflicts) - detection, and more
automatic resolution

  * Reflective/cyclic merges

  * How WC-NG will help.
    - WC support for true renames
    - facilitate further development
    - client-side speed

I can't say that any of these are "coming soon", except WC-NG.

/me looks at hwright's and cmpilato's customer feedback
<http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/notes/feedback/>

That's useful, and really makes me realize how important this stuff is.

Any other suggestions of what I should say?
