Why is master-48 branch divergent from trunk history?


I noticed this when pushing a branch that I had incidentally created from the master-48… This divergence makes tree downloads much larger than necessary, and will make cherry-picks difficult.

The difference is inherent to the current relationship to svn.

If a topic is created of master-48, the associated PR should be done against that same base. Then, it should work out pretty well.

I am not sure to understand the difficulty added for cherry-picking.
