Subject: [PATCH v5 1/1] mergetool: add automerge configuration
Date: Tue, 22 Dec 2020 22:53:58 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201223045358.100754-2-felipe.contreras@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201223045358.100754-1-felipe.contreras@gmail.com>

The purpose of mergetools is to resolve conflicts when git cannot
automatically do so.

In order to do that git has added markers in the specific areas that
need resolving, which the user must manually fix. The tool is supposed
to help with that.

However, by passing the original BASE, LOCAL, and REMOTE files, many
changes without conflict are presented to the user when in fact nothing
needs to be done for those.

We can fix that by propagating the final version of the file with the
automatic merge to all the panes of the mergetool (BASE, LOCAL, and
REMOTE), and only make them differ on the places where there are actual
conflicts.

As most people will want the new behavior, we enable it by default.
Users that do not want the new behavior can set the new configuration
mergetool.autoMerge to false.

See Seth House's blog post [1] for the idea, and the rationale.
