GIT-FMT-MERGE-MSG(1) Git Manual GIT-FMT-MERGE-MSG(1)

NAME git-fmt-merge-msg - Produce a merge commit message

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

DESCRIPTION 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 command is intended mostly for internal use by scripts automatically invoking git merge.

OPTIONS --log In addition to branch names, populate the log message with one-line descriptions from the actual commits that are being merged.

--no-log Do not list one-line descriptions from the actual commits being merged.

--summary, --no-summary 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.

merge.summary Synonym to merge.log; this is deprecated and will be removed in the future.
