Subversion 1.5 will have much better built-in commands for merging. This is great news!

It’s good to see features like this make it into subversion proper so that we can stop using wrapper scripts like sv, which I presented at last week’s ChiPy meeting. I’d like to think that scripts like sv lead the Subversion team to realize that these kinds of features are important, but who am I kidding, those guys are way smarter than I am.
