Glad to see I'm not the only one. Since most of my resolves involve 
branching, I have
a 3x5 card on my wall that says: "Source = Theirs, Target = Yours"

I have to ignore that when it comes time to submit a file that's been 
changed by someone
else. (I understand how the terminology applies, but I still can't keep it 
straight without a
bit of thought.) -Wm
