Tree conflict 'svn merge' message

I just tried to merge the swig-py3 branch into trunk [not in order to
commit the merge, but only in order to run 'svn diff' on its result],
and got the following output from 'svn merge':

Summary of conflicts:
  Tree conflicts: 1
Searching tree conflict details for 'build/generator/util/executable.py' in repository:
Checking r1819556... done
Tree conflict on 'build/generator/util/executable.py':
Changes destined for a file arrived via the following revisions during merge of

No such file or directory was found in the merge target working copy.
'^/subversion/trunk/build/generator/util/executable.py' was deleted in r1819556 by danielsh.

Subversion is not smart enough to resolve this tree conflict automatically!
See 'svn help resolve' for more information.

Select: (p) Postpone, (r) Mark as resolved, (h) Help, (q) Quit resolution: h

That's the correct diagnosis: the branch changed a file
(build/generator/util/executable.py) that was later deleted on trunk.
So that worked well.

That said, I'm a bit confused by the language "via the following
revisions …:" where the colon isn't followed by one or more revision
numbers. Is it just an empty set of revisions?
