Re: Branching Practices

I use svk exactly for that: a better branch merger. I usually keep local mirrors and merge between those (I keep my own branches in my own SVN repositories for upstream stuff, so that I can easily keep local modifications). So svk is a real godsend for any way of forking, even if it is just for your own convenience. Actually I _only_ do the merging and fork-handling in svk, everything else is done with standard svn - that's mostly because svk is dog-slow on my OS X machines.
