Huh? I sent you request for review on 24 October 2008 and did received 
any reply, so that I went ahead and checked it in due to maintainer timeout.

Hi Doug,

How are you? Can you please review and hopefully approve the following
patch, which makes mergemaster to skip any files that only differ in
revision number. This is extremely helpful in tracking stable releases,
since there are lot of cases when nothing changes but revision number.

The patch is here:

Thanks in advance!
