ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Siebel Retro-fitment Issue

Using merge utility provided in Siebel Tools to retrofit the changes on different DEV environment:

   - The merge function works for different objects

   - Changes made on similar object ( specifically on eScripts ) completely overwrites the changes which are part of SIF file.

 

Ideally this is behavior of Overwrite functionality and not merge. The merge functionality should only merge the new changes and not overwrite them

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Script should be merged not overwritten.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Import SIF File
