That's exactly what i have tried first. The syntax you mention is
similar to mine, except that you don't mention the optional path,
because you're already in the branch.

It is documented as the second syntax of the 'svn merge' command.

svn merge -r N:M SOURCE [PATH]

In the second form, /SOURCE/ can be a URL or working copy item, in which case the corresponding URL is used.
This URL, at revisions /N/ and /M/, defines the two sources to be compared.

Anyway, it's the same result.

The problem, to be more precise, is around directories created in the
trunk. They are not created in the branch, and what is mentionned to be
"skipped missing target" is the content of these directories.

Any ideas why ?
