With the small utility that i just added, I did find the merge of the two
It's Monticello-topa.599 from september 2014.
So we effectively have both bf.540 packages as valid ancestors, one in
trunk, the other in the inbox, but we cannot have them both in same
We could perform some chirurgy, renaming inbox/Monticello-bf.540 with a
branch name => Monticello.partialCommit-bf.540
But then, we will have to apply this chirurgy to every offspring down to
working copy, and republish every offspring package...
Since 2014, that's quite some progeny!

I guess that we should also apply this to the inbox offsprings, and let the
responsibility of updating any other replication to their owner...
We can as well ignore the problem, move inbox/Monticello-bf.540 to
TreatedInbox, since MC is robust to missing packages...
