That's the key right there... he will want to merge all changes that happened
on the trunk between r135 and HEAD into his working copy of the branch.

Let's pretend he has the project checked out as:


The easiest way to handle the merge, imho, is to do the following:

$ cd /FooProject/branches/Bar
$ svn merge -r135:HEAD svn://svnserver/FooProject/trunk .

Note the period at the end of the command, telling Subversion to merge these
changes into the local working copy.

The Subversion book has some good information on this:

Section 4. Common Use-Cases for Merging
