NAME

       git-strip-merge - A git-merge wrapper that deletes files on a "foreign" branch before
       merging

SYNOPSIS

       git-strip-merge [git-merge options] [-M <commitmsg>] <branch> FILE...

DESCRIPTION

       git-merge that deletes files on "foreign" <branch> before merging.

       Useful for ignoring a folder in <branch> before merging it with current branch. Works by
       deleting FILE(S) in a detached commit based on <branch>, and then performing the merge of
       this new commit in the current branch. Note that <branch> is not changed by this
       procedure.  Also note that <branch> may actually be any reference, like a tag, or a remote
       branch, or even a commit SHA.

       For more information, see <http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3111515>

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
               show help message and exit

       -v, --verbose
               do not use -q to suppress normal output of internal steps from git checkout, rm,
               commit. By default, only git merge output is shown.  Errors, however, are never
               suppressed.

       -M <message>, --msgcommit=<message>
               message for the removal commit in <branch>. Not to be confused with the message of
               the merge commit, which is set by -m. Default message is: "remove files from
               '<branch>' before merge".

       -m <message>, --message=<message>
               message for the merge commit. Since we are not merging <branch> directly, but
               rather a detached commit based on it, we forge a message similar to git's default
               for a branch merge. Otherwise git would use in message the full and ugly SHA1 of
               our commit.  Default message is: "Merge stripped branch '<branch>'".

       For both commit messages, the token "<branch>" is replaced for the actual <branch> name.

       Additional options are passed unchecked to git merge.

       All options must precede <branch> and FILE(s), except -h and --help that may appear
       anywhere on the command line.
