Re: "Zombie" files repeatedly updated when merging between branch and trunk

Hi Bob,

The branch mentioned in my first email was created using a 1.5.4
client (IntelliJ 8 (EAP 9805) which uses SVNKit 1.2.1). The merge was
performed using a 1.5.5 client (Mac OS X subversion command line).

Is it possible to prevent this occurring again by manually altering
the svn:mergeinfo properties for the affected files? Or is there a
better/safer way?
