I have created a git repository for the three metadata files used 
in the NUT-UPS conversion.  The purpose of this is to allow Charles
to edit the lift script. The repository is at 

   git at gitorious.org:reposurgeon/nut-conversion.git

This supplements the reposurgeon 2.0pre repository at

   git at gitorious.org:reposurgeon/reposurgeon.git

Here is the current state of play:

1. reposurgeon is now creating merge links from directory-copy
information, and gets both of the problem cases right that we
previously identified (the Eaton_SDK branch and the copy of
branches/Development to trunk). 

2. reposurgeon may be creating a few too *many* such merge links.
The topology doesn't look wrong, exactly, but there are places
where there are merge bubbles with no commits on one side.

3. The code for manually creating branch merges is still not
working reliably.

The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably
by the Prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for
the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot
be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime
in this country is closely connected with this.
