NAME

       git-merge-tree - Show three-way merge without touching index

SYNOPSIS

       git merge-tree <base-tree> <branch1> <branch2>

DESCRIPTION

       Reads three tree-ish, and output trivial merge results and conflicting stages to the
       standard output. This is similar to what three-way git read-tree -m does, but instead of
       storing the results in the index, the command outputs the entries to the standard output.

       This is meant to be used by higher level scripts to compute merge results outside of the
       index, and stuff the results back into the index. For this reason, the output from the
       command omits entries that match the <branch1> tree.
