I did not follow the merge tracking development in SVN or TSVN.
What did or will change with the merge tracking implementation in the
SVN 1.5 line? I realize that merge tracking keeps track of merges by
updating a new svn:merge (or similar name) property. But how would
this influence the TSVN GUI or the merging procedure in general?

Would we see an improved merge (or merge dialog), or would this be
just more intelligence in the background?

Can you point me into some direction (old threads on this list, or svn
documents) where I can read more about how merge tracking is supposed
to work in the future, from a user's point of view?
