I think I solved it. As you can see, revisions 269 to 335 are missing
from the mergeinfo. It tried to merge them. I did

> svn merge --record-only -r269:335
> svn commit -m "Populate mergeinfo"

and now it worked.

I think the advice Mark gave me was wrong: you shouldn’t do a
record-only starting at when the branch was created, but starting at 1
until now to populate the mergeinfo correctly. Is this true?
