Subject consolidating mergeinfos
Date Fri, 13 Mar 2015 10:56:41 GMT

I've been checking on if it's somehow reasonable for us to consolidate 
mergeinfos which have been built-up over the past 3-4 years in our 
repository. After checking on several papers/scripts/posts on the net, 
I've found this script which seemed to be a promising candidate at first:

After reviewing the code I however see that (despite the really slow 
performance of the script --- in our case running the script on the 
entire repository would take approximately 2-3 years), I think the 
script is not handling a few special cases correctly. Especially 
non-inheritable mergeinfos seem to be not taken into account correctly, 
but completely ignored.

Can someone confirm that? Does anybody know of a better way to 
consolidate mergeinfos? Wouldn't it be useful to add support to SVN 
directly to consolidate mergeinfos?
