OK, I bounced my mails to the list as well (but haven't seen your mail
on the list yet). Let's continue on the list.

Maybe the history will be merged (commit logs, ...) but not the content
of PO files as they conflict and you agreed to not merge these.

You're right, you should delete "post-lenny" after the merge I'm just not
sure whether I will be able to get the latest state of the branch
immediately before the removal for inspection because of my limited
mercurial knowledge :-)

I want to properly check that I do not forget to manually merge a PO file
(as I mentioned only a single file probably needs special attention namely
po/sk.po, see 2203:9e5225e40d8d) back from post_lenny into head. But on the
other side I can inspect my current state of the working copy :-) So no
