Selecting merge strategy options for git rebase
git-rebase man page mentions
-X<option> can be passed to
git-merge. When/how exactly?
I'd like to rebase by applying patches with recursive strategy and theirs option (apply whatever sticks, rather than skipping entire conflicting commits). I don't want merge, I want to make history linear.
git rebase -Xtheirs
git rebase -s 'recursive -Xtheirs'
but git rejects
-X in both cases.
git rebase -Xtheirs works in recent versions, except tree conflicts need to be resolved manually. You need to run
git rebase -Xtheirs --continue (with
-X repeated) after resolving those conflicts.
