git merge without auto commit
Is it possible to do a "git merge", but without a commit?
"man git merge" says this:
With --no-commit perform the merge but pretend the merge failed and do not autocommit,
to give the user a chance to inspect and further tweak the merge result before
But when I try to use git merge with the --no-commit it still auto-commits. Here's what I did:
$> ~/git/testrepo$ git checkout master
Switched to branch 'master'
$> ~/git/testrepo$ git branch
$> ~/git/testrepo$ git merge --no-commit v1.0
file1 | 1 +
1 files changed, 1 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
$> ~/git/testrepo$ git status
# On branch master
# Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 1 commit.
nothing to commit (working directory clean)
A subsequent "git log" reveals all the commits from the v1.0 branch merged into master.
