Subject: Question about pre-merge and git merge octopus strategy
Date: Fri, 6 May 2022 16:14:56 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I am thinking about if git can "pre-merge" multiple branches, which
can check if merge
will have conflict, but not to merge them actually, like a option `--intend`.

I find "git merge-tree" can output merge result in stdout, which meets
my needs, but it can only
support two branches' merge.

So I find git merge with more than two branches can use octopus strategy.
What about git merge --no-commit? Which will not commit automatically,
so we can check if they have
confilct, and abort merge.

I think it's not useful for git merge-octopus, because if we meet a
merge conflict, we can't find
MERGE_HEAD at all! How can we abort this conflict merge?
