Subject: Two RFC/WIP series for facilitating merge conflict resolution
Date: Mon, 6 Aug 2018 15:44:02 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi everyone,

Last week, Duy posted an interesting RFC patch for improving merge
conflict resolution by coloring the "CONFLICT' messages that are
output during a merge. I have two more ideas (complementary to his)
for improving merge conflict resolution experience.  My two ideas are
mostly independent of each other but with a couple important ties;
I'll shortly respond with a short RFC/WIP series for each.

Some notes applicable to both:
  - Each has a very long cover letter, due to trying to anticipate
questions/surprises and responding to each.  It may be simpler to skip
the cover letter (or just read the up-front summary) and see if the
patches make sense,
  - I am planning to imminently start looking into my merge-recursive
rewrite[1].  One possibility is just doing these changes as part of
the new strategy...thoughts?


[1] See part E from;
also the two RFCs I'm about to post are part C from that email.
