At the moment when someone merge packages he also merge their comments and that messes up whole discussion flow.

It would be nice to separate comments from merged package, e.g. with different background color or style. Or maybe add bold wording "From merged package $pkgname" to the comment body or title.
This task depends upon

I think it might be worth it to make it more general and just store the package (or split package) the comment was submitted to in the DB, and then eitther always display that next to the commentor's nick, or just displaying it when the package name is different from the one on the current page.
