Edit a merge commit with git rebase
In Git when I have commits eg.
A - B - C and I want to edit the
B commit, I
git rebase -i <A-commit-hash>,
- in the list I write
edit command in front of
- git rebase stops right after
B commit so I can fix anything I want using
git commit --amend,
- and then I continue using
git rebase --continue.
As far as I know this is the best practice how to do this. With this method I can edit any commit in the past (as long as it hasn't been pushed to remote branch yet), and moreover with
-p flag I can even preserve the merges. This is just great.
My current problem is: I did a mistake (typo) on one line in a merge commit (while resolving a conflict when merging two branches).
I'd like to fix it but I don't know how to make
git rebase to stop at a merge commit. The
git rebase -p -i <blah> list ignores merge commits, so I cannot write
edit command in front of it and make the
git rebase stop there to let me edit it.
Any help please? I just want to fix this line in the merge commit while preserving all the commits (and merges) after it.
