Hi,

I have 30 files that I want to merge, but I do not know which would be the
easiest and much efficient and save way to do so.

I have the main production line Z and two other branches X and Y. All of
the branches are still in production since X and Y are minor releases.
Therefor on a time frame they are look this:

Z - trunk, next major release
Y - next minor release (Z - Y = small changes)
X - used to make patches for an old release

The idea is that between Z and Y aren't so many differences, but between X
and Y(or Z) are plenty.

There was a fix in the X branch that needs to be back ported into Z and Y.
I am using svn merge to merge changes from X to Y, but because of the big
differences I think it adds even code that could not be useful in Y,
showing as conflicts just a few code blocks/file.

which would be the best approach for such a merge?
