RE: Confused about how to merge changes from branch to trunk

Either something is wrong with my svn server or client, or this is a very unintuitive process. Or i'm an idiot.

So I merged all the changes from trunk into my branch working copy. I think committed all of that to the branch.

I then checked out a copy of trunk and went to do a merge a range of revisions. I select revisions 154, 159 and 160 (160 is the commit to the branch of all the code i got from trunk)

Doing this i now get a tree conflict on two files - two files which were added into trunk previously by the other dev which i have not touched. So I have no idea at all why they would be conflicting. If i merge just 154 and 159 (my two branch revisions) into trunk, that seems to work.

If i select no revisions, that sort of works. It's at least not trying to add in every file in the project. It's actually selecting revisions 153-160 it seems - which again leads to a tree conflict on those two files.

So i did a merge of revisions 153-159 and that seems to have worked.

So - am i an idiot, is this not very intuitive or is something messed up with my svn client/server? ;)
