I kind-of followed that page; when I tried without any revision numbers, the
merge-test reported a tree conflict in an unrelated library while my changed
files weren't reported. I did a merge-test again, with revision numbers
(, update test code for C++11's numeric_limits; , fix narrowing
conversion error in less-than; and , correct for MSVC not accepting
"not" for "!".) and got the expected results, except for a maybe-conflict for
"libs/rational/test/rational_test.cpp", since multiple change-sets affect that
file. (The other file for these changes is "boost/rational.hpp", which is
affected in one change-set.)
I performed an actual merge, and that conflict-warning never happened. A
diff from the pre-changed archive had the expected results, so I committed the
merge on the release branch as change-set . Since it's my first time
touching the release branch, can some expert check that I didn't accidentally
fry some meta-data (or some other damage)?
