Re: SVN Bug? mergeinfo being stamped on wrong files

One way to get mergeinfo on non-mergeinfo nodes is when you copy a
directory.

E.g. the repository has /trunk/dirA, without mergeinfo anywhere below
/trunk. In a working copy on /trunk do:

        svn copy ^/trunk/dirA dirB

Now dirB has mergeinfo that is not helping in any way.

If you do instead:
        svn copy dirA dirB

dirB gets no mergeinfo. But that is probably related with the note about
WC -> WC copies explained by "svn help copy".
