GUI schmuie. :)

I'd suggest using the command line client, I've found it much more
predictable. Merging is actually not that hard. See - the
examples should be all you need.

Basically, the process is: Check out the thing you want to merge *to*. Use
svn merge and specify the thing you want to merge *from*, and the revisions
you want to merge ( is useful here).

Then resolve any local confilcts, run the tests (!) and do svn commit.
