Gavin Lambert:
You could move the SQL directory to somewhere where it isn't getting
merged. (eg. if your base merge folder is /trunk/source, move your SQL
folder to /trunk/SQL)

If you can't move the folder relative to your working copy, you could
probably achieve much the same effect by using svn:externals. I don't
think they get used as part of a merge.


Ok, thanks for the ideas. I like the idea of moving the SQL up from
/trunk/source to /trunk/SQL to accommodate the merges. This lets me
still maintain the SQL on each branch, but without having to worry about
merging in the code.
