Perform the merge and commit the result. This option can
be used to override --no-commit.
With --no-commit perform the merge but pretend the merge
failed and do not autocommit, to give the user a chance to
inspect and further tweak the merge result before committing.
Do not generate a merge commit if the merge resolved as
a fast-forward, only update the branch pointer. This is
the default behavior of git-merge.
With --no-ff Generate a merge commit even if the merge
resolved as a fast-forward.
In addition to branch names, populate the log message with
one-line descriptions from at most <n> actual commits that are being
merged. See also linkgit:git-fmt-merge-msg[1].
With --no-log do not list one-line descriptions from the
actual commits being merged.
Show a diffstat at the end of the merge. The diffstat is also
controlled by the configuration option merge.stat.
With -n or --no-stat do not show a diffstat at the end of the
Produce the working tree and index state as if a real
merge happened (except for the merge information),
but do not actually make a commit or
move the `HEAD`, nor record `$GIT_DIR/MERGE_HEAD` to
cause the next `git commit` command to create a merge
commit. This allows you to create a single commit on
top of the current branch whose effect is the same as
merging another branch (or more in case of an octopus).
With --no-squash perform the merge and commit the result. This
option can be used to override --squash.
Refuse to merge and exit with a non-zero status unless the
current `HEAD` is already up-to-date or the merge can be
resolved as a fast-forward.
-s <strategy>::
Use the given merge strategy; can be supplied more than
once to specify them in the order they should be tried.
If there is no `-s` option, a built-in list of strategies
is used instead ('git merge-recursive' when merging a single
head, 'git merge-octopus' otherwise).
-X <option>::
Pass merge strategy specific option through to the merge
Synonyms to --stat and --no-stat; these are deprecated and will be
removed in the future.
Operate quietly. Implies --no-progress.
Be verbose.
Turn progress on/off explicitly. If neither is specified,
progress is shown if standard error is connected to a terminal.
Note that not all merge strategies may support progress
