The --dry-run merge shows that it would create a directory src. If I
remove --dry-run it does create the directory. No errors.

So your output starts

A triplea\src\games\strategy\engine\framework\startup\ui\editors

While mine starts

A wc/src
A wc/src/games
A wc/src/games/strategy
A wc/src/games/strategy/engine
A wc/src/games/strategy/engine/framework
A wc/src/games/strategy/engine/framework/startup
A wc/src/games/strategy/engine/framework/startup/ui
A wc/src/games/strategy/engine/framework/startup/ui/editors
