Subject: blank lines in pre-created merge message
Date: Wed, 24 Jul 2019 11:54:09 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I think I had tried bringing this to your attention before, but I think it was
without success.
The issue may seem purely cosmetical, while being easy to fix (is my guess):

When using "git merge --no-ff --no-commit ..", the pre-created merge message
always contains two empty lines in between the comment lines. However if there
was a merge conflict (being resolved) an extra blank line is added after the
first line.

In vi those empty lines are easy to spot, and I routinely remove them. But
maybe it's better not to create them at the beginning. (A "normal commit" never
creates any emüpty lines in the pre-created comment)

My Git version is 2.12.3, but the bug is probably quite old...
