Subject Re: Copy changes from one branch to another
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2013 06:49:11 GMT

thank you all for your input. I guess we are on the right track now.
Thinking about what you said we will go the different way, instead of
committing to branch A, the testsystem that should use branch A will
pull all changes from the trunk. If there is a merge error we can
handle this manually, however, this way around we guess it will be
easier to automate.

Thanks again,
