     2== Proposal to Upgrade to Subversion 1.6 == 
     3 
     4Following extracted from email from Robert Lupton on 12 April 2010: 
     5 
     6SVN 1.5 introduced merging between trunk and branches, but the initial 
     7implementation has problems with so-called "tree conflicts" 
     8(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.tour.treeconflicts.html).  The svn 
     91.6 release has significantly improved the situation, and I believe that we 
     10should switch to it. 
     11 
     12I know that e.g. KT was having problems with merge --reintegrate to the trunk, 
     13+and I think it likely that this was at least part of the problem. 
     14 
     15This requires updating the svn server, explicitly updating the repository 
     16format, and switching to svn 1.6 clients everywhere. 
     17 
     181.6.9 is available for os/x from macports.  For linux boxes the web's a little 
     19unclear what's involved, but apparently at worst there's a package from 
     20RPMForge that works on centOS boxes.
