We want to know why you are seeing:

> Missing ranges: /trunk/my_projec:4485

which lacks a trailing 't' in the path name.

That's the only obviously wrong thing in your problem report.

Now, to figure out where this 't' is snipped off, we want you to give
us information that narrows down the circumstances of the problem.

We'd like to see:

- Output of 'svn propget svn:mergeinfo ^/trunk/my_project'
- Output of 'svn propget svn:mergeinfo ^/branches/my_project'

The above two commands are using URLs, they return server-side information.

- Output of 'svn propget svn:mergeinfo working_copy_of_trunk_my_project'
- Output of 'svn propget svn:mergeinfo working_copy_of_branches_my_project'

The above two commands are using working copy paths, they return
client-side information.

Any difference (or non-difference) between these outputs will help us
narrow down which layer of the system is introducing mergeinfo which
lacks the trailing character of the pathname. Based on that information
we can determine further diagnostics.

If you could try the merge on the server itself, using a file:// URL to
access the repository, we can tell whether the issue happens only if
HTTP is involved. This is an important test since the HTTP layer
in Subversion 1.8 is very from Subversion 1.7, see

For information about what file:// URLs are and how to use them, see
If you don't have command shell access to the Subversion server,
performing this test requires help from your server administrators.
