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 ([85417], update test code for C++11's numeric_limits; [85418], fix narrowing conversion error in less-than; and [85434], 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 [85441].  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)?
