I sent lots of details.  If you can't see them then perhaps something is buggy with the help
system.  The conflicts were either "local add, incoming add upon merge" or " local delete,
incoming delete upon merge"

Did you ask for help on this list when you got similar conflicts?
Any pointers to threads I could read?

I'm genuinly interested in what conflicts you were seeing and how you attempted to resolve
But I need details, handwavy statements won't help me.
