RE: Merging change sets for a production release,

Hi again -
I have a follow up question, please.

I had an helpdesk issue with 18 changesets attributed to it.
It took a while to resolve all the issues - but I finally got there.

I did a "diff" on one of the files and I noticed that in the revision that there was a conflict for that file - there was no mergeinfo recorded for that revision.
Do I need to do a --record-only "post" merge when there is a conflict?

As always - thanks,

 - Gavin.
