Re: Merging from one branch to another

Remember, when merging branches like this CVS has to work its way
(through the diffs) back to the branch point, and then up the new
branch.  Even though the files look the same, CVS keeps no information
stating that the versions can be directly diff'd.  You will often get
these pseudo-conflicts as a result of this process.  Sometimes I find it
simpler to do the branch merges myself (external program).
