git-fmt-merge-msg - Produce a merge commit message
git-fmt-merge-msg [--log | --no-log] <$GIT_DIR/FETCH_HEAD git-fmt-merge-msg [--log | --no-log] -F <file>
Takes the list of merged objects on stdin and produces a suitable commit message to be used for the merge commit, usually to be passed as the <merge-message> argument of git-merge.
This script is intended mostly for internal use by scripts automatically invoking git-merge.
In addition to branch names, populate the log message with one-line descriptions from the actual commits that are being merged.
Do not list one-line descriptions from the actual commits being merged.
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.
Whether to include summaries of merged commits in newly merge commit messages. False by default.
Synonym to merge.log; this is deprecated and will be removed in the future.
