Yes, you need to be worried about repeating the merges. Look at this
part of chapter 4:


When merging the branch back to the trunk, you need to make sure to
exclude revisions that trunk already has. (Hopefully you've been
writing good commit messages in your branch that describe exactly which
revisions have been ported from trunk to branch, as the book describes.)
