Agreed, these should be consistent. I see you did that in r1440647.

We need to describe the merge on the added node because the merge
might represent changes other than simply the add.

Here's an example:

### Starting with a vanilla Greek tree, make two branches:

>svn copy A branch-1
A branch-1

>svn copy A branch-2
A branch-2

>svn ci -m "" -q

### Move a directory on our "trunk":

>svn move A\D A\D-MOVED
D A\D\G\pi
D A\D\G\rho
D A\D\G\tau
D A\D\H\chi
D A\D\H\omega
D A\D\H\psi
D A\D\gamma

>svn ci -m "" -q

### Sync the "trunk" to the first branch:

>svn merge ^^/A branch-1
--- Merging r2 through r3 into 'branch-1':
A branch-1\D-MOVED
A branch-1\D-MOVED\H
A branch-1\D-MOVED\H\psi
A branch-1\D-MOVED\H\chi
A branch-1\D-MOVED\H\omega
A branch-1\D-MOVED\gamma
A branch-1\D-MOVED\G
A branch-1\D-MOVED\G\pi
A branch-1\D-MOVED\G\rho
A branch-1\D-MOVED\G\tau
D branch-1\D
--- Recording mergeinfo for merge of r2 through r3 into 'branch-1':
 U branch-1

>svn ci -m "" -q

>svn up -q

### Make some file edits within the moved subtree on the first branch:

>echo branch1 edit> branch-1\D-MOVED\H\chi

>svn ci -m "" -q

>echo branch1 edit> branch-1\D-MOVED\G\pi

>svn ci -m "" -q

### Perform file level and directory level subtree merges from the
first branch back to "trunk":

>svn merge ^^/branch-1/D-MOVED/G/pi A\D-MOVED\G\pi
--- Merging r4 through r6 into 'A\D-MOVED\G\pi':
--- Recording mergeinfo for merge of r4 through r6 into 'A\D-MOVED\G\pi':

>svn merge ^^/branch-1/D-MOVED/H A\D-MOVED\H
--- Merging r4 through r6 into 'A\D-MOVED\H':
--- Recording mergeinfo for merge of r4 through r6 into 'A\D-MOVED\H':

>svn st

>svn pl -vR A
Properties on 'A\D-MOVED\G\pi':
Properties on 'A\D-MOVED\H':

>svn ci -m "subtree cherry picks back from branch"
Sending A\D-MOVED\G\pi
Sending A\D-MOVED\H
Sending A\D-MOVED\H\chi
Transmitting file data ..
Committed revision 7.

>svn up -q

### Now sync the "trunk" with the *second* branch:

>svn merge ^^/A branch-2
--- Merging r2 through r7 into 'branch-2':
A branch-2\D-MOVED
A branch-2\D-MOVED\gamma
A branch-2\D-MOVED\G
A branch-2\D-MOVED\G\pi
A branch-2\D-MOVED\G\rho
A branch-2\D-MOVED\G\tau
A branch-2\D-MOVED\H
A branch-2\D-MOVED\H\chi
A branch-2\D-MOVED\H\omega
A branch-2\D-MOVED\H\psi
D branch-2\D
--- Recording mergeinfo for merge of r2 through r7 into 'branch-2':
 U branch-2

### Note that with your issue #3405 fixes we no longer record any mergeinfo
### describing the merge on the two added subtrees with explicit mergeinfo:

>svn st
 M branch-2
D branch-2\D
D branch-2\D\G
D branch-2\D\G\pi
D branch-2\D\G\rho
D branch-2\D\G\tau
D branch-2\D\H
D branch-2\D\H\chi
D branch-2\D\H\omega
D branch-2\D\H\psi
D branch-2\D\gamma
A + branch-2\D-MOVED

>svn pl -vR branch-2
Properties on 'branch-2':
Properties on 'branch-2\D-MOVED\G\pi':
Properties on 'branch-2\D-MOVED\H':

>svn ci -m "" -q

### The previous behavior did describe the merge on the directory subtree
### (the fact that it doesn't on the file is another bug attributable to the
### inconsistency between files and dirs which you pointed out above):

old>svn pl -vR branch-2
Properties on 'branch-2':
Properties on 'branch-2\D-MOVED\G\pi':
    /branch-1/D-MOVED/G/pi:4-6 <-- Nothing for the file! That's an old
bug (or at least pre-dates Bert's change)
Properties on 'branch-2\D-MOVED\H':

### Ok, returning to the new behavior, if we repeat the merge, the
mergeinfo indicates that r7
### hasn't been merged to the two subtrees (which we know from above
it has been) and tries
### to remerge that revision. That's a big no-no for mergetracking
since one of it's primary
### purposes in life is to avoid repeat merges (and the spurious
conflicts that go with them):

>svn merge ^^/A branch-2
--- Merging r7 into 'branch-2\D-MOVED\G\pi':
 G branch-2\D-MOVED\G\pi
--- Merging r7 into 'branch-2\D-MOVED\H':
 G branch-2\D-MOVED\H
--- Recording mergeinfo for merge of r2 through r8 into 'branch-2':
 U branch-2
--- Recording mergeinfo for merge of r2 through r8 into 'branch-2\D-MOVED\G\pi':
 U branch-2\D-MOVED\G\pi
--- Recording mergeinfo for merge of r2 through r8 into 'branch-2\D-MOVED\H':
 U branch-2\D-MOVED\H
