RE: Spurious svn:mergeinfo updated on random, untouched files on minimalistic merge?!

Thank you very much for that helping link!
This is exactly the type of background information I've been looking for.

With the help of your linked article, if found out that on the root directory
a mergeinfo was set. I tried to removed the existing property as workaround on
both trunk & branch.

Unfortunately I still receive explicit entries mergeinfo entries following
this scheme on totally unrelated paths (no relevant commit since branch-off):

Added: svn:mergeinfo
   Merged /branches/1.1.x/tools/releasenotes:r3101-3122*
Added: svn:mergeinfo
   Merged /branches/1.1.x/tools/releasenotes/axis-jaxrpc-1.3.jar:r3101-3122

Any hint on where those do origin from?
Are those issues adressed by svn 1.7.x?
The mentioned articel did not provide any explanation pattern for me.

Cheers!

I don't have time right now to analyze and explain your particular
situation, but as for a link to detailed background information, you
might want to read this article:
http://www.collab.net/community/subversion/articles/merge-info.html

Also, if I understood correctly, improvements are being made in this
area for svn 1.7 (for starters, in 1.7 only subtrees affected by the
merge will have their mergeinfo updated). But it's too early to tell
how that will work out. Svn 1.7 is still at least a couple of months
away...
