I have installed one for some long time.

My silence is related to a small experience with Subversion and I can
trust to what I read from web pages and others writes on scummvm-devel

I'm not sure how such merge trees would looks like. That was
reorganisation  of tree, how files from diffrent places are linked ? Does
that mean it could be like current scumm/scumm.cpp to scummvm.cpp from old
tree ?

I don't have any objections from what I read, and I'm for move into
