Subject Re: SVN merge attempting to reintegrate on a merge to a branch
Date Mon, 16 Sep 2013 09:16:10 GMT
Hi Andrew,

I think it's a problem in the 1.8 client.  I tested doing the merge with
the same branch using a 1.6 SVN client for the checkout and the merge and
it did not encounter any issues or complain about missing revisions.  This
leads me to believe that it is a bug and not just a presentation issue.
It is preventing the merge from working in the way described in the manual
and we have both encountered the same issue so I think I will raise this
issue in the bug tracker.  I checked to see is there anything in there
already but I could not find anything relevant.
