2010-01-18Make "subtree" part more orthogonal to the rest of merge-recursive.Junio C Hamano
This makes "subtree" more orthogonal to the rest of recursive merge, so that you can use subtree and ours/theirs features at the same time. For example, you can now say: git merge -s subtree -Xtheirs other to merge with "other" branch while shifting it up or down to match the shape of the tree of the current branch, and resolving conflicts favoring the changes "other" branch made over changes made in the current branch. It also allows the prefix used to shift the trees to be specified using the "-Xsubtree=$prefix" option. Giving an empty prefix tells the command to figure out how much to shift trees automatically as we have always done. "merge -s subtree" is the same as "merge -s recursive -Xsubtree=" (or "merge -s recursive -Xsubtree"). Based on an old patch done back in the days when git-merge was a script; Avery ported the script part to builtin-merge.c. Bugs in shift_tree() is mine.

2007-06-07War on whitespaceJunio C Hamano
This uses "git-apply --whitespace=strip" to fix whitespace errors that have crept in to our source files over time. There are a few files that need to have trailing whitespaces (most notably, test vectors). The results still passes the test, and build result in Documentation/ area is unchanged.

2007-04-07A new merge stragety 'subtree'.Junio C Hamano
This merge strategy largely piggy-backs on git-merge-recursive. When merging trees A and B, if B corresponds to a subtree of A, B is first adjusted to match the tree structure of A, instead of reading the trees at the same level. This adjustment is also done to the common ancestor tree. If you are pulling updates from git-gui repository into git.git repository, the root level of the former corresponds to git-gui/ subdirectory of the latter. The tree object of git-gui's toplevel is wrapped in a fake tree object, whose sole entry has name 'git-gui' and records object name of the true tree, before being used by the 3-way merge code. If you are merging the other way, only the git-gui/ subtree of git.git is extracted and merged into git-gui's toplevel. The detection of corresponding subtree is done by comparing the pathnames and types in the toplevel of the tree. Heuristics galore! That's the git way ;-). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
