Solve conflicts before commit in Git
I'm coming from SVN to Git. In SVN when two developers change the same file at same time (from the same file version), the last committer will get a conflict flag to solve before commit his changes. In Git the common way is the last commiter/pusher will solve the conflicts and generate a 3th commit and then push the original and merge commits.
Is possible merge the server changes before make a local commit and then make a single commit (without conflicts) in SVN style? To simplify assume both developers are using local copies of master instead others branches.
