Hi Max,

I've been forced to work on Windows recently (due to my wireless card 
not working under linux), and because I did not have Python installed I 
just downloaded the svnmerge.exe windows executable from orcaware.com. 
When I do "svnmerge --version" it tells me its r29854. This appears to 
be pretty out of date, so I guess it would be a good idea for me to 
install Python and get the latest version of svnmerge.

Also when I simply do "svnmerge merge" I get the following message:

svnmerge: multiple sources found. Explicit source argument (-S/--source) 
The merge sources available are:

So in order to merge I have to do "svnmerge merge -S /scummvm/trunk".

But in terms of the svn:mergeinfo property thats on my branch, i'm not 
sure exactly why its there. Will it be safe to simply delete it?
