A minimal common ancestor of two (or more) versions is a revision which is ancestor to all of them, but does not have a child revision which is.

Or, in other words: if you have two (or more) branches, their minimal common ancestor is the point where they diverge.

If you have revisions in your archive which merge branches, there may be more than one minimal common ancestor.
