Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

the problem is that you make changes and commit on the branch. So 
you can merge from thousends from different versions, if you commit,
you will get a new version in the branch.
Do this befor:
- update the file to HEAD (do update with "reset any sticky tags/date/kopts")
- merge with the branch
- commit and you will get a new revision in the main trunk...

best regards,
