Merging different versions of a software program can result in broken code due to conflicting changes that are not detected by the line-based merge algorithms of many version control systems. A system for analyzing merges is proposed to detect changes that, when combined, have side effects. For the detection I have come up with new, naive algorithms. At the moment more testing is still required, and for a future in the real world some improvements have to be made.
