I want to use package merge for a meta-model I'm developing. I tried a
simple example in the uml editor. I create a package P with class A, and
another package M. M merges P. Now I execute the package merge using
the editor action, and everything works as expected. M now contains a
class A. However, the package merge element has been removed from M, and
has been replaced by some annotation.

When I now make a change to A in P (or any change to P, maybe add a
class) how do I get this change into M? I can't do the package merge
again, because the package merge element isn't part of M any more. When
I re-create a package merge child element in M, I can execute the merge
and the updates made in A are copied into M. This seems to be quite
tedious during model development because there will be many changes. Is
there a way of simplifying this process?

Or is it a bug that merging removes the package merge element from the
receiving package?

Thanks,
Lutz
