If we all agree on that, I'll go ahead and rename it in the code that I
just added.

Andreas & Klaas, are you going to rename it in the api code, and in the
Wiki as well?

Did that, added
http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service/Concepts/Submit_Request
that obsoletes the Merge Request page and hopefully gives a better
overview how the whole system should look like.

As always: Feedback is appreciated.

Will it also be possible to create a branch on the server without having the
client to copy around files? Depending on the number and size of the file
that can become an expensive operation, while on the server the overhead is
much less.

The actual copy is planned to be done on the server side, indeed.

It would also be interesting to have this operation available in a general
way, so that you can copy (or move) packages between arbitrary projects, not
only to the home:branch projects. This would for example make it easier to
create a project for a development version of a stable package, without
having to manually copy spec files, etc.

In some way, the functionality you describe is similar to what is
possible with linked packages, I think -- with the possible extension of
linked package handling to allow seeing actual source files, instead of
a _link file. (Whereas it still is represented as linked package plus
patch on the server.)

It would also be nice to be able to branch without automatically creating a
submit request. Otherwise this will be a purely offline feature. But it would
be useful to be able work on a branched package a bit on the build service
servers (e.g. in the web interface or together with some other people) before
submitting it to the original project.

Yes, agreed.

A branching should not lead to a "request" right away - that would be a
tad unrealistic.

Except for the occasional typo fix, or some real genius ;)
