The merge command is nothing more than getting a diff between two
places and applying that as a patch to a third place. Your merge
command told Subversion to create a diff between import/repository-2/
app/file1.rb and trunk/app/file1.rb, and apply that diff to
checkoutdir/app/file1.rb. If checkoutdir is a working copy of your
trunk, then the requested diff cannot be applied, because it makes no
sense, because the requested changes are already present in the
working copy.

You have changes in both versions? Do you mean you have changes in
both import/repository-1 and import/repository-2? If so, where is the
original unchanged version? Is it perhaps back in the history of one
or both of the imported repositories? When we know where the original
unchanged version is, then we can help you construct the correct
merge command.
