Ages ago there was a GSoC project, Org merge driver, for use with git.
I don't recall what was the last status.  Okay, found some info:


Would be good to somehow revive this.  I guess it's not an easy problem.
If I remember correctly, there was no prior discussion on the list what
should be the merge strategy.  It happened as the project progressed.  I
think this is one of those projects where a clear path/plan how to
proceed before writing any code would be very beneficial.

Maybe someone can propose a plan?
