RE: Re: Getting merge to ignore a directory in source and destination branch for a merge (tree conflict)

I'm working with paul. Here is a patch of what we hacked svn 1.6.x with.

The difference is we are effectively undoing this change: http://svn.collab.net/viewvc/svn/trunk/subversion/libsvn_wc/tree_conflicts.c?r1=34854&r2=34860

In our patch, when you have an existing tree conflict, and you try to add another tree conflict on top of it, there will be a verbose warning of the new and existing conflicts, but it will not return. The merge continues.

We reviewed the files affected by this double tree-conflict merge and it turned out that almost all of them resulted in a net delete. (In the HEAD version we're merging to they were deleted).

Please take a look at the patch, if you think it would help you diagnose what we're doing. Do you folks see any unintentional side affects this might cause?
