I'm not sure I really understand what you mean. Are you saying you
would first merge from the trunk to your branch (the changes that other
people have committed to the trunk in the meantime), and then merge back
from your branch to the trunk? Isn't this going to cause lots of
problems? It has been my experience that it's best to always merge only
one way between branches.
