git merge followed by another git merge?
I have an awkward git merge scenario where I am not sure what is the best way forward. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Our development branch has multiple contributors and hence is a hosted git repository. So there are three trees: upstream(say upX), development branch(say devX) & my local git tree for development branch (say local_devX)
As a developer working on devX, I periodically merge changes from upX (aka upstream). Recently the following happened:
I merge upstream changes (from upX --> local_devX) and resolve all conflicts. Here is how the trees looked at that point
| | |
devX: --L--M--D'--N--O |
I begin testing the G' merge which takes about a week (due to bug fixes). Now in the mean time both upstream and local_devX branches have moved forward and I need to resync local_devX branch to accommodate for those changes.
Here is where I am right now:
| | |
I can always blow away my local_devX branch and checkout a fresh copy of devX & do the merge again. But then i will be redoing my merge commit G' all over again.
What would be the best way to achieve the following without having to redo G' work?
| | |
devX: --L--M--D'--N--O---P--Q |
I guess i can do two more merges one for devX changes(P&Q) and the second for upX changes (H&K, since G has already been merge in my local). But I am not sure if this will mess up things like having an unreadable history.
