Please include the list in any replies.

As I it says in the post, and I reiterated above, it does not matter
what you did on the branch. If trunk already has sub-tree mergeinfo
it gets carried into the branch.

BTW, since you did not do any merges from trunk to the branch you can
merge the branch back to trunk without the --reintegrate option. You
only really need to use --reintegrate when you have been keeping the
branch in synch with trunk.
