Yes, it's kind of easy to miss, because there is no explicit issue in
the issue tracker for this AFAIK. But I vaguely remember some mail
threads on the dev-list about this, and saw it mentioned in the
description of another issue about mergeinfo ([1]). This refers to
revision r878767 ([2]), which is apparently the reintegration of a
feature branch "subtree-mergeinfo", which was made specifically for
developing this feature.

Since this is quite a big issue for a lot of users, it's important not
to forget about this change when the time comes to write the release
notes for 1.7. Maybe it should be mentioned on the roadmap page (as
one of the finished items), or an issue should be created in the issue
