Synopsis

svn merge sourceURL1[@N] sourceURL2[@M] [wcpath]
svn merge sourceWCPATH1@N sourceWCPATH2@M [wcpath]
svn merge -r N:M source [path]

In the first form, the source URLs are specified at revisions N and M. These are the two sources to be compared. The revisions default to HEAD if omitted.

In the second form, the URLs corresponding to the source working copy paths define the sources to be compared. The revisions must be specified.

In the third form, source can be a URL or working-copy item, in which case the corresponding URL is used. This URL, at revisions N and M, defines the two sources to be compared.

wcpath is the working-copy path that will receive the changes. If wcpath is omitted, a default value of “.” is assumed, unless the sources have identical basenames that match a file within “.”, in which case, the differences are applied to that file.

Unlike svn diff, this command takes the ancestry of a file into consideration when performing a merge operation. This is very important when you’re merging changes from one branch into another and you’ve renamed a file on one branch but not the other.
