AW: Modifying a repository

Thanks for your help.
Your suggestions are understood so far.
One more question:
What administrative files are affected - surely the "history"-file and the
"val-tags"-file. Is there another one?
And, how have i to modify for example the "history"-file? The information
stored there is separated with "|"-bars. Some of these information are
understandable for me, some not.
Larry, you said that i only have to merge the contents - does that mean
that the information stored in the "history"-file, for example, are
"one-way"-couplings, only affecting the working directories so that these
are o.k. if i check out the new repository to a new working directory?
And that it is insensible to the sequencing of lines?
