RE: Re: Projected date for next version of SVN?

Though merge tracking could be a nice feature if properly implemented,
merges can be tracked with a little discipline, i.e. by keeping an
up-to-date diagram of your merges and making sure merge operations are
always committed in the same way with the following info:
- Branch it was merged from
- Revisions range
- Revisions excluded in that range
- Log of the merge, i.e. what you get when you do a merge --dry-run
Though the first 3 are the most essential, the last one provides valuble
info in case you need to come back to the merge.

In any case I wouldn't regard the absence of built-in merge tracking a
show stopper for not moving to Subversion...

I quite like the fact that Subversion knows nothing of branches, merges
etc, this is where most of the flexibility of the tool comes from.
Adding merge tracking to the tool will have to be carefully designed so
that the tool flexibility is not lost in the game.
