This is perfectly normal, sometimes a file is changed multiple times for a 
single feature. In order to merge the feature branch back into trunk, you just 
merge those changes, either in a single step or one after the other.

The first part of this sentence doesn't make sense to me, it looks like broken 
English. Concerning how to get at the 15, you can just go through each file in 
your branch and check when they were last changed using "svn log", but that is 
unnecessarily complicated. Just look at the log of the branch as a whole in 
order to decide which changes to merge.

BTW: I have the feeling as if you wanted to replace the version of a file in 
trunk with the version in the branch. This of course can be done, just use 
"svn copy", but it is a bad approach to branching and merging. The reason is 
that if trunk was changed, the changes there are effectively discarded.

Still, I'm not really sure I understand what you are trying to achieve. 
Really, giving an example would help, all with what you have, what you do, and 
what you expect to have afterwards. This still isn't clear.

Good luck!
