    I recently had a question about merging files in Perforce Helix that have no direct lineage.

    For example, let's say you want to merge file //depot/main/foo.c (source) to //depot/dev/foo.c (target), which is fine, but you realize the target file was not branched from the source and there is no base (common ancestor). To determine the base, Helix uses integration history created by previous integration commands to know which file revisions to integrate. However, since dev/foo.c was not branched from main/foo.c there is no integration history between these two paths: a baseless merge.
