RE: Diff shows added svn:mergeinfo prop as lots of new merges
I think the key is that what is done to merge for 1.8 have significant
substance not just be a "nice to have". Users aren't indicating
confusion so much as they are indicating performance issues and
mishandled or unhandled use cases. Better information is good, but real
progress on the items giving users true pain would be much, much better.
It may be that 1.8 can't wait for the time it might take to tackle these
items (and I don't want to see it driving that release where we find
ourselves with another 2+ years without new functionality), but progress
on those items has to start to ever bring relief to the users.
Delivering something around merging in 1.8 isn't as important as making
that progress so that relief can be seen to be around the corner.
