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_DIR/FETCH_HEAD
       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.
