    Nice explanation. I find however that most tree conflicts occur when merging, not when updating. Do you see any conceptual differences?

    Another issue sometimes occurs is that people don’t rename correctly. Resulting in delete+add. I haven’t used the merge target yet, but I assume it’ll work just as well in this case?

    I find the naming confusing. Left and right? Why not use working copy and incoming or repository.

    The purpose of this post was to try to treat the concept of tree conflicts generically. I give a couple of examples to show the tools and options that are available to resolve them and also just to help understand what they are and what Subversion is trying to tell you.
    The Resolve option in the SVN Tree Conflicts view will vary the options it presents you to resolve the conflict based on the details of your conflict. If you have further questions, they would be better asked in our Subversion Client discussion forum.
