Git octopus merge with unrelated repositoies
I have a bunch of git repositories, each containing one file. I'd like to merge them all together, preferably in one step. What I'm aiming for is this graph:
| \ \ \
| | | * repoA/master
| | * repoB/master
| | |
| | * repoB/...
| * repoC/master
I tried a
git merge, but it appears the octopus strategy doesn't work for disjoint trees
$ git merge a/master b/master c/master d/master
Unable to find common commit with a/master
Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit the result.
I was also told that
git merge --squash would help, but that gave the same error.
This generates the right graph, but loses all the files:
$ git merge -s ours a/master b/master c/master d/master
How do I go about doing this?

I want to be able to see the entire patch applied by a merge as a single diff output. In bzr this is the standard (such that if you view the diff at a merge point you get the entire diff resulting fro
You can determine with git merge-base if a fast forward is possible, but is there some git trick to determine if two branches will merge cleanly with some strategy without actually doing the merge? I
For larger teams, having to pull/update/merge then commit each time makes no sense to me, specifically when the files that were changed by other developers have nothing to do with my changeset files.
