Linus calls subversion the most worthless project ever because you
can't do CVS right and that's SVN's goal. I want to hear LInus' take
now that SVN is copying ideas from git.
Having read the release notes you linked:
"but there are still parts of our original spec that remain to be
done, and merging is sometimes too slow."
Though this svn:mergeinfo support should make merges less
painful...when finally implemented. Though, using a property for
merge info seems like a cheap hack to me. In git the merge commit has
two parent commits which intrinsically and permanently links the
merge. A number of the outstanding issues seem entirely expected for
a tacked-on solution. I'm being smug. :)
