Re: svn up --paranoid [was "Disabling automatic conflict resolution" ]

Karl:

This doesn't quite work because, as someone else mentioned (cmpilato I
think?) changes that were the same both locally and remotely are destroyed
during this process. The information content is lost as no one bothers to
record it. The way Subversion currently stands (unlike CVS, which is an
important note; see my e-mail on the other thread), you can't recover from a
merge process if it went horribly wrong.

Sincerely,
Jay Freeman (saurik)
