Subject: [PATCH v5] Enable auto-merge for meld to follow the vim-diff beharior
Date: Wed, 01 Jul 2020 07:06:46 +0000
Message-ID: <pull.781.v5.git.git.1593587206520.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.781.v4.git.git.1593516397380.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Lin Sun <lin.sun@zoom.us>

Make the mergetool used with "meld" backend behave similarly to
how "vimdiff" behavior by telling it to auto-merge parts without
conflicts and highlight the parts with conflicts when configuring
`mergetool.meld.hasAutoMerge` with `true`, or `auto` for
automatically detecting the option.

    Enable auto-merge for meld to follow the vimdiff beharior
    
    Hi, the mergetool "meld" does NOT merge the no-conflict changes, while
    the mergetool "vimdiff" will merge the no-conflict changes and highlight
    the conflict parts. This patch will make the mergetool "meld" similar to
    "vimdiff", auto-merge the no-conflict changes, highlight conflict parts.
