Just to clarify, here is an example: merge 1-3, 7-8. Assume 1-3
merges cleanly, 7-8 has 3 sections which merge OK and one section with
conflicts. If I select 'Use local' I get the complete merge of 1-3,
the successful 3 chunks in 7-8 and the 'mine' sections of the
conflicts in 7-8. And if I choose 'Use repository' I get the same, but
instead using the 'theirs' section of the conflicts. Is that correct?
