Subject Re: preventing recording misaligned mergeinfos
Date Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:03:08 GMT
It does and that's not quite the problem for me. However what's possible 
to do with SVN are merges like these:

merge A/B/somefile into A

absolutely valid operation, but nothing we use here. In cases this is 
done here in our company it's always an incorrect merge (because someone 
chose the wrong destination folder.
So we want to prevent issues like these, because they can easily result 
in polluting the mergeinfo records.

My current solution would be to add a pre-commit hook to prevent any mergeinfo records on
any but the top-most node (aka:

it's certainly not exactly what I want/need.
