Sorry, it's not really that you should always merge from the root of the
wc. The point is that you should always merge from the same folder of
your wc - and that's usually the wc root.
If however you always merge from your /skin folder, then you should keep
doing that. The mergeinfo properties are set according to the folder
you're merging from, so if you always do it from the same folder, those
properties help speed up the merging a lot. However if you merge from
many different folders, those properties can't help you a lot to speed
up the process - they still help, but the merging has to ask the
repository for every folder that hasn't the full mergeinfo properties.
