The page isn't very long and it's really the only page that exists  
for it.  There's one step on the branch

$ init
$ svn commit -F svnmerge-commit-message.txt

And then if there's a commit on trunk

$ merge
$ svn commit -F svnmerge-commit-message.txt

Much easier then keeping track of revision numbers :)

I would just suggest setting it up before doing any merges.
