SYNOPSIS

git-fmt-merge-msg [--log | --no-log] <$GIT_DIR/FETCH_HEAD
git-fmt-merge-msg [--log | --no-log] -F <file>

DESCRIPTION

Synonyms to --log and --no-log; these are deprecated and will be removed in the future.

-F <file>
--file <file>

Take the list of merged objects from <file> instead of stdin.

CONFIGURATION

merge.log

Whether to include summaries of merged commits in newly merge commit messages. False by default.
