OK, thanks.

No, I got some source files with many conflicts also:
[nmt at localhost geany-build-system]$ svn st |egrep '^C'
C      src/build.c
C      src/keybindings.c
C      src/plugindata.h
C      src/filetypes.h
C      doc/images/pref_dialog_edit_completions.png
C      doc/images/pref_dialog_toolbar.png
C      doc/geany.html

The src/ conflicts were quite a lot, and each one should have just
taken the branch version instead of conflicting AFAICT.

No, the trunk ChangeLog is for trunk only. There should be one entry
describing all the changes in the merge, dropping any trivial
commit messages.

Yes, that's annoying.
