Hi Peter,

The 'svn mergeinfo --show-revs eligible ^/SOURCE TARGET' only shows revisions that would actually impact TARGET if a merge was attempted. So if r303-r314 don't affect your trunk, they are ignored by 'svn mergeinfo'.

How exactly does 'svn mergeinfo --show-revs eligible' tell you that? I might be misunderstanding what you mean here...

Again, it might not have anything to merge because r303-r314 doesn't affect ^/trunk. It should be updating the mergeinfo on the branch however. Run it again and then run 'svn st' and 'svn diff'. Do you see any changes to the mergeinfo on the target? Something like this?

Property changes on: branch-wc
Modified: svn:mergeinfo
   Merged /trunk:r303-314

Basically this means, "Nothing was merged, but now this branch is synced with trunk up to r314".

The update of the svn:mergeinfo property happens silently (in the forthcoming 1.7 release there are special notifications to avoid potential confusion).
