Hey guys,

we're still getting this 'folding' problem it seems.  I think with
true merges we can't avoid it, but I thought if we all used pull on
our local copy of the trunk we could minimize it, no?  That's what I
was trying to use (bzr pull instead of bzr merge) and it seemed to be
working...

No big deal, but I'd like to keep our log linear when the underlying
development was indeed linear (as this little change was).  Let's see
if the pull approach works better.

Anyway, I'm offline now again...

Cheers,

f
