Transformations, Patterns, Version Control: Where there is modeling, there is merging

It may not have occurred to you that the need to merge models is everywhere: from incremental model transformations to version control, team work on models, or model refactoring.

We report on three industrial usages of EMF Diff/Merge for three different purposes.
