I've been looking at the table in the release notes (in my browser,
not the textual diff, but replying on this commit to have some context
-- the "kinds of versioned items" column is already gone btw).

I think it would be easier to understand for users if we changed the
order of the columns, to describe it like a user encountering the tree
conflict would experience it (at least, the way I experience it :-),
which is:

1) What's my local situation (local change)
2) What operation did I do (operation)
3) What's the incoming change
4) Resolution options

The grouping between some things would then change as well.

So that would be:

  <tr>
    <th>local change</th>
    <th>operation</th>
    <th>incoming change</th>
    <th>resolution options</th>
  </tr>

In the first column there would be 4 possibilities right now, if we
shuffle the table around: "move an item", "add an item", "any change
inside a directory", "edit file" (or maybe these should be set in past
tense "edited file", "moved item", ... , because the user did them
already?). BTW: this makes me wonder, why no "deleted an item" for
local change?

I'm willing to do this shuffling if we agree, and if noone else does
it first :-).
