Merge conflicts ruin my commit message while squashing commits
My usual workflow with git is to create a new feature branch, do some work with frequent commits, and then merge back into the development branch when the feature is working and/or stable.
Usually, when I do
git merge --squash feature-branch, I get a nice "squashed commit of the following" message that auto-populates with all of the commit messages from the feature branch.
However, if there are any merge conflicts (say I finished and merged another feature while working on this one), I seem to lose all of my commit messages from the branch. The auto-populated commit message fills in the conflicts, but not the commit messages. Where did my commit messages go? Can I get them back?
