Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: tomboy

When managing a set of notes between several machines, syncing should be
a useful way to make sure that all the notes are the same between
systems, a la SVN/CVS version control. Instead, the "merging" algorithm
is just to either delete the local note or rename it every time there is
a remote change. This makes synchronising painful to say the least,
since the changes are usually of a sort that could be seamlessly merged,
again a la SVN/CVS.

Using e.g. the SVN or Bazaar merging algorithm to merge remote and local
copies and to highlight potential conflicts is necessary before this
feature is really usable.
