Since older clients are not updating svn:mergeinfo, merge tracking
could be easily broken if an old client is allowed to commit to

You may want to block those clients with a start-commit hook:



if [ "${svnpath:0:9}" = "/branches" ]; then

     if [ "${capabilities/mergeinfo//}" = "${capabilities}" ]; then

         echo "Please update to SVN >= 1.5" > /dev/stderr
         exit 1



exit 0
