Re: SVN merge attempting to reintegrate on a merge to a branch

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your response. You are right, I hadn't noticed but on the
first line about the missing ranges the last letter of the project name is
missing and I had just pasted over it when I sanitized the path names.

I got around this as you suggested by using the -r 4401:HEAD option but
this is becoming a recurring problem for us lately. We prefer to merge
the trunk project to the branch in preparation of reintegrating the branch
to trunk but we seem to hit this issue quite a bit lately.

Is this a bug? Is it something we are doing wrong? Is there any
information we could send that would help diagnose and prevent the issue?

Many Thanks,
