mergemaster confusion

I have a mergemaster question. I assume this is my error but do not see what I 
did. I am testing remote update procedures so I started with a 7.0 IS0 and 
updated it to 7.4.

My mergemaster.rc has the following directives:


plus some diff options. As this was a system with nothing changed except for 
group, passwd, and csh.cshrc, I expected mergemaster to update all the other 
files. I think from the code the value does not matter for the first three so 
yes would be ok (if I am correct).

As this did not work (as I expected), I retried with mergemaster -rFUi getting 
the same result. What did I do wrong?
