+merge.conflictStyle::
+ Specify the style in which conflicted hunks are written out to
+ working tree files upon merge. The default is "merge", which
+ shows a `<<<<<<<` conflict marker, changes made by one side,
+ a `=======` marker, changes made by the other side, and then
+ a `>>>>>>>` marker. An alternate style, "diff3", adds a `|||||||`
+ marker and the original text before the `=======` marker.
+
+merge.defaultToUpstream::
+ If merge is called without any commit argument, merge the upstream
+ branches configured for the current branch by using their last
+ observed values stored in their remote-tracking branches.
+ The values of the `branch.<current branch>.merge` that name the
+ branches at the remote named by `branch.<current branch>.remote`
+ are consulted, and then they are mapped via `remote.<remote>.fetch`
+ to their corresponding remote-tracking branches, and the tips of
+ these tracking branches are merged.
+
+merge.ff::
+ By default, Git does not create an extra merge commit when merging
+ a commit that is a descendant of the current commit. Instead, the
+ tip of the current branch is fast-forwarded. When set to `false`,
+ this variable tells Git to create an extra merge commit in such
+ a case (equivalent to giving the `--no-ff` option from the command
+ line). When set to `only`, only such fast-forward merges are
+ allowed (equivalent to giving the `--ff-only` option from the
+ command line).
+
+merge.verifySignatures::
+ If true, this is equivalent to the --verify-signatures command
+ line option. See linkgit:git-merge[1] for details.
+
+include::fmt-merge-msg.txt[]
+
+merge.renameLimit::
+ The number of files to consider when performing rename detection
+ during a merge; if not specified, defaults to the value of
+ diff.renameLimit. This setting has no effect if rename detection
+ is turned off.
+
+merge.renames::
+ Whether and how Git detects renames. If set to "false",
+ rename detection is disabled. If set to "true", basic rename
+ detection is enabled. Defaults to the value of diff.renames.
+
+merge.renormalize::
+ Tell Git that canonical representation of files in the
+ repository has changed over time (e.g. earlier commits record
+ text files with CRLF line endings, but recent ones use LF line
+ endings). In such a repository, Git can convert the data
+ recorded in commits to a canonical form before performing a
+ merge to reduce unnecessary conflicts. For more information,
+ see section "Merging branches with differing checkin/checkout
+ attributes" in linkgit:gitattributes[5].
+
+merge.stat::
+ Whether to print the diffstat between ORIG_HEAD and the merge result
+ at the end of the merge. True by default.
+
+merge.tool::
+ Controls which merge tool is used by linkgit:git-mergetool[1].
+ The list below shows the valid built-in values.
+ Any other value is treated as a custom merge tool and requires
+ that a corresponding mergetool.<tool>.cmd variable is defined.
+
+merge.guitool::
+ Controls which merge tool is used by linkgit:git-mergetool[1] when the
+ -g/--gui flag is specified. The list below shows the valid built-in values.
+ Any other value is treated as a custom merge tool and requires that a
+ corresponding mergetool.<guitool>.cmd variable is defined.
+
+include::../mergetools-merge.txt[]
+
+merge.verbosity::
+ Controls the amount of output shown by the recursive merge
+ strategy. Level 0 outputs nothing except a final error
+ message if conflicts were detected. Level 1 outputs only
+ conflicts, 2 outputs conflicts and file changes. Level 5 and
+ above outputs debugging information. The default is level 2.
+ Can be overridden by the `GIT_MERGE_VERBOSITY` environment variable.
+
+merge.<driver>.name::
+ Defines a human-readable name for a custom low-level
+ merge driver. See linkgit:gitattributes[5] for details.
+
+merge.<driver>.driver::
+ Defines the command that implements a custom low-level
+ merge driver. See linkgit:gitattributes[5] for details.
+
+merge.<driver>.recursive::
+ Names a low-level merge driver to be used when
+ performing an internal merge between common ancestors.
+ See linkgit:gitattributes[5] for details.
