Two of the most complex operations version control software allows a user to perform are branching and merging. Branching provides the user the ability to create a copy of the source code to allow changes to be stored in version control but outside of the trunk. Merging provides the user the ability to copy changes from a branch to the trunk. Performing a merge can be a tedious operation and one that may be error prone. In this paper, we compare file revisions found on branches with those found on the trunk to determine when a change that is applied to a branch is moved to the trunk. This will allow us to study how developers use merges and to determine if merges are in fact more error prone than other commits.
