If that's the case then from the branch you use the --reintegrate option.

Thanks a lot for your response. I am afraid but I am not fully
understand the logic. Which I am following is collected from net and I
have just doing the same. I admit I don't know the in-depth about how
merging works. It might be interesting that I am now getting something
new than the empty return as before. Please fine below

svn diff -r 488:489
Index: branches/bug/typo3conf/localconf.php
--- branches/bug/typo3conf/localconf.php (revision 488)
+++ branches/bug/typo3conf/localconf.php (revision 489)
@@ -1,9 +1,12 @@


The modification is done at branches/bug/typo3conf/localconf.php. Now I
try to merge it to trunk

svn merge --dry-run -r 488:489 branches/bug/ trunk/

--- Merging r489 into 'trunk':
C trunk/typo3conf/localconf.php
Summary of conflicts:
Text conflicts: 1

Why the conflict now ? I have provide both source and target and
confirmed the changes with "svn diff" !!! What is wrong from my end ?
Please enlighten me.
Once again thanks for your kind help.
