2010-09-09merge: Make '--log' an integer option for number of shortlog entriesRamkumar Ramachandra
Change the command-line '--log' option from a boolean option to an integer option, and parse the optional integer provided on the command-line into the 'shortlog_len' variable. Also update the documentation accordingly.

2010-02-24Documentation/git-pull: put verbosity options before merge/fetch onesTay Ray Chuan
After 3f7a9b5 (Documentation/git-pull.txt: Add subtitles above included option files, Thu Oct 22 2009), the -q/-v options were mentioned only for the merge options section, giving the impression that git-fetch did not take those arguments. Follow 90e4311 (git-pull: do not mention --quiet and --verbose twice, Mon Sep 7 2009) and hide -q/-v for merge options, while mentioning -q/-v before the merge- and fetch-specific options.

2010-01-10Documentation: spell 'git cmd' without dash throughoutThomas Rast
The documentation was quite inconsistent when spelling 'git cmd' if it only refers to the program, not to some specific invocation syntax: both 'git-cmd' and 'git cmd' spellings exist. The current trend goes towards dashless forms, and there is precedent in 647ac70 (git-svn.txt: stop using dash-form of commands., 2009-07-07) to actively eliminate the dashed variants. Replace 'git-cmd' with 'git cmd' throughout, except where git-shell, git-cvsserver, git-upload-pack, git-receive-pack, and git-upload-archive are concerned, because those really live in the $PATH.

* bg/merge-ff-only: Teach 'git merge' and 'git pull' the option --ff-only
2009-10-30Teach 'git merge' and 'git pull' the option --ff-onlyBjörn Gustavsson
For convenience in scripts and aliases, add the option --ff-only to only allow fast-forwards (and up-to-date, despite the name). Disallow combining --ff-only and --no-ff, since they flatly contradict each other. Allow all other options to be combined with --ff-only (i.e. do not add any code to handle them specially), including the following options: * --strategy (one or more): As long as the chosen merge strategy results in up-to-date or fast-forward, the command will succeed. * --squash: I cannot imagine why anyone would want to squash commits only if fast-forward is possible, but I also see no reason why it should not be allowed. * --message: The message will always be ignored, but I see no need to explicitly disallow providing a redundant message. Acknowledgements: I did look at Yuval Kogman's earlier patch (107768 in gmane), mainly as shortcut to find my way in the code, but I did not copy anything directly.

2008-07-05manpages: italicize git command names (which were in teletype font)Jonathan Nieder
The names of git commands are not meant to be entered at the commandline; they are just names. So we render them in italics, as is usual for command names in manpages.

2008-06-08Docs: Use "-l::\n--long\n" format in OPTIONS sectionsStephan Beyer
The OPTIONS section of a documentation file contains a list of the options a git command accepts. Currently there are several variants to describe the case that different options (almost) do the same in the OPTIONS section. Some are: -f, --foo:: -f|--foo:: -f | --foo:: But AsciiDoc has the special form: -f:: --foo:: This patch applies this form to the documentation of the whole git suite, and removes useless em-dash prevention, so \--foo becomes --foo.

2008-04-13merge, pull: introduce '--(no-)stat' optionSZEDER Gábor
This option has the same effect as '--(no-)summary' (i.e. whether to show a diffsat at the end of the merge or not), and it is consistent with the '--stat' option of other git commands. Documentation, tests, and bash completion are updaed accordingly, and the old --summary option is marked as being deprected.

2007-09-24git-merge: add --ff and --no-ff optionsLars Hjemli
These new options can be used to control the policy for fast-forward merges: --ff allows it (this is the default) while --no-ff will create a merge commit. Signed-off-by: Lars Hjemli <hjemli@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2007-09-24git-merge: add support for --commit and --no-squashLars Hjemli
These options can be used to override --no-commit and --squash, which is needed since --no-commit and --squash now can be specified as default merge options in $GIT_DIR/config. The change also introduces slightly different behavior for --no-commit: when specified, it explicitly overrides --squash. Earlier, 'git merge --squash --no-commit' would result in a squashed merge (i.e. no $GIT_DIR/MERGE_HEAD was created) but with this patch the command will behave as if --squash hadn't been specified.

This uses "git-apply --whitespace=strip" to fix whitespace errors that have crept in to our source files over time.

2006-06-24git-merge --squashJunio C Hamano
Some people tend to do many little commits on a topic branch, recording all the trials and errors, and when the topic is reasonably cooked well, would want to record the net effect of the series as one commit on top of the mainline, removing the cruft from the history. The topic is then abandoned or forked off again from that point at the mainline. The barebone porcelainish that comes with core git tools does not officially support such operation, but you can fake it by using "git pull --no-merge" when such a topic branch is not a strict superset of the mainline, like this: git checkout mainline git pull --no-commit . that-topic-branch : fix conflicts if any rm -f .git/MERGE_HEAD git commit -a -m 'consolidated commit log message' git branch -f that-topic-branch ;# now fully merged This however does not work when the topic branch is a fast forward of the mainline, because normal "git pull" will never create a merge commit in such a case, and there is nothing special --no-commit could do to begin with. This patch introduces a new option, --squash, to support such a workflow officially in both fast-forward case and true merge case. The user-level operation would be the same in both cases: git checkout mainline git pull --squash . that-topic-branch : fix conflicts if any -- naturally, there would be : no conflict if fast forward. git commit -a -m 'consolidated commit log message' git branch -f that-topic-branch ;# now fully merged When the current branch is already up-to-date with respect to the other branch, there truly is nothing to do, so the new option does not have any effect. This was brought up in #git IRC channel recently. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
