OK, I've re-uploaded the repositories to the same locations. I've
fixed the incorrect merge issue and updated parents for most of the
re-created branches.

The only one I haven't updated is the "Create branch for configurable
build menu development", now commit 80d2802. There's something strange
- it appears the branch existed before but it was never merged into
trunk. Instead it was probably deleted and re-created again. If I
updated the parent to be the trunk only, we'd lose the history of this
branch because we couldn't get to the previous commits in any way. So
I think it's better to keep it the way it is.
