git-fmt-merge-msg - Produce a merge commit message


   git fmt-merge-msg [-m <message>] [--log[=<n>] | --no-log]
   git fmt-merge-msg [-m <message>] [--log[=<n>] | --no-log] -F <file>


   Takes the list of merged objects on stdin and produces a suitable
   commit message to be used for the merge commit, usually to be passed as
   the <merge-message> argument of git merge.

   This command is intended mostly for internal use by scripts
   automatically invoking git merge.


       In addition to branch names, populate the log message with one-line
       descriptions from the actual commits that are being merged. At most
       <n> commits from each merge parent will be used (20 if <n> is
       omitted). This overrides the merge.log configuration variable.

       Do not list one-line descriptions from the actual commits being

       Synonyms to --log and --no-log; these are deprecated and will be
       removed in the future.

   -m <message>, --message <message>
       Use <message> instead of the branch names for the first line of the
       log message. For use with --log.

   -F <file>, --file <file>
       Take the list of merged objects from <file> instead of stdin.


       In addition to branch names, populate the log message with the
       branch description text associated with them. Defaults to false.

       In addition to branch names, populate the log message with at most
       the specified number of one-line descriptions from the actual
       commits that are being merged. Defaults to false, and true is a
       synonym for 20.

       Synonym to merge.log; this is deprecated and will be removed in the
