svnmerge2.py – A tool for SVN merge operations

Well, SVN is not yet dead. Enterprise world still uses it, or at least it’s still used at my workplace :-)

When it comes to merging, one has the choice of TortoiseSVN or svnmerge from Orcaware. Each of these has their drawbacks. For example, TortoiseSVN is very mouse-intensive, so it’s click-error prone (yes, yes). The script from Orcaware is somewhat strict, and it even requires one to use it from the very beginning of the project. But what if you didn’t use it at that time? So, how to get a small improvement to this situation? Enter svnmerge2.py. I put the sources on, well, GitHub! 😉

There are instructions in both French and English. However, the script only shows French strings. I plan to add English translation later, when I’ll have some spare time. Meanwhile, if you need it, feel free to translate it and add a pull request on GitHub. I’d be glad to integrate it.
