GIT-FMT-MERGE-MSG(1)              Git Manual              GIT-FMT-MERGE-MSG(1)



NAME
       git-fmt-merge-msg - Produce a merge commit message

SYNOPSIS
       git fmt-merge-msg [--log | --no-log] <$GIT_DIR/FETCH_HEAD
       git fmt-merge-msg [--log | --no-log] -F <file>


DESCRIPTION
       Takes the list of merged objects on stdin and produces a suitable
       commit message to be used for the merge commit, usually to be passed as
       the <merge-message> argument of git merge.

       This command is intended mostly for internal use by scripts
       automatically invoking git merge.

OPTIONS
       --log
           In addition to branch names, populate the log message with one-line
           descriptions from the actual commits that are being merged.

       --no-log
           Do not list one-line descriptions from the actual commits being
           merged.

       --summary, --no-summary
           Synonyms to --log and --no-log; these are deprecated and will be
           removed in the future.

       -F <file>, --file <file>
           Take the list of merged objects from <file> instead of stdin.

CONFIGURATION
       merge.log
           Whether to include summaries of merged commits in newly merge
           commit messages. False by default.

       merge.summary
           Synonym to merge.log; this is deprecated and will be removed in the
           future.
