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 [-m <message>]	[--log[=<n>] | --no-log]
       git fmt-merge-msg [-m <message>]	[--log[=<n>] | --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[=<n>]
	   In addition to branch names,	populate the log message with one-line
	   descriptions	from the actual	commits	that are being merged. At most
	   <n> commits from each merge parent will be used (20 if <n> is
	   omitted). This overrides the	merge.log configuration	variable.

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

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

       -m <message>, --message <message>
	   Use <message> instead of the	branch names for the first line	of the
	   log message.	For use	with --log.

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

CONFIGURATION
       merge.branchdesc
	   In addition to branch names,	populate the log message with the
	   branch description text associated with them. Defaults to false.

       merge.log
	   In addition to branch names,	populate the log message with at most
	   the specified number	of one-line descriptions from the actual
	   commits that	are being merged. Defaults to false, and true is a
	   synonym for 20.

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

EXAMPLE
	   $ git fetch origin master
	   $ git fmt-merge-msg --log <$GIT_DIR/FETCH_HEAD

       Print a log message describing a	merge of the "master" branch from the
       "origin"	remote.
