Hi,

To confirm a merge, a client should move a source URI from either
the merge-set or the auto-merge-set to the predecessor-set. This
can lead to an inconsistent server if the second of both property
updates fails or is never issued by the client. Such a responsibility
should not lie with the client. I think it is better that the server
does it and in an atomic way. This requires either another method
or another behaviour of the CHECKIN method when a merge is not
complete, i.e. the CHECKIN becomes the confirmation.

Regards,

Werner.
