An additional aspect I forgot in my last answer: Subversion is
inconsistent here when comparing textual and directory changes for the
same type of operation. If I delete a line in trunk and testing (the
files are identical and have of course the same ancestor) and then
merge the deletion from trunk to testing, everything is OK and no
conflict is raised (as discussed before). However, if I delete a
_directory_ in trunk and testing (the directories are also identical
and have the same ancestor) and then merge this deletion from trunk to
testing, a tree conflict is raised:

! C testing/a
> local delete, incoming delete upon merge

According to your argument, this is no conflict at all, because there
is only one way of resolution -- the non-existing directory (which is
to be deleted again) remains non-existing. For whatever reason, it
_is_ seen as a (tree) conflict. Why?

Regards,

Christoph
