RE: Merging Properties?

Subversion only sees that the changes were made independently on
precisely the same item. It knows nothing of the content or impact of
that change within your code and, rightly so, will identify this
situation as a conflict.

Since your using Tortoise, this is easy enough to deal with in the
situation you describe. Right-click, edit conflicts, use whichever
block of text you please, mark as resolved, test the code, commit the
merge, and be on your merry way.

Suppose I have a file on trunk called file.txt. I put a property on
it, say color with the value red.
Now I copy trunk to a branch B.
On branch B I change file.txt's color property to green.
Now independently on trunk, I also change file.txt's color property to
green.
When I merge the branch B back to trunk, I get a merge conflict, even
though both the branch and the trunk are trying to change the property
to the same value.

Is this expected or a bug or ...?
