stg squash [options] [--] <patches>
DESCRIPTIONSquash two or more patches, creating one big patch that contains all their changes. In more detail:
- 1. Pop all the given patches, plus any other patches on top of them.
- 2. Push the given patches in the order they were given on the command line.
- 3. Squash the given patches into one big patch.
- 4. Allow the user to edit the commit message of the new patch interactively.
- 5. Push the other patches that were popped in step (1).
-n NAME, --name NAME
- Name of squashed patch.
-m MESSAGE, --message MESSAGE
- Use MESSAGE instead of invoking the editor.
-f FILE, --file FILE
- Use the contents of FILE instead of invoking the editor. (If FILE is "-", write to stdout.)
Instead of running the command, just write the message template to FILE, and exit. (If FILE is "-", write to stdout.)
When driving StGit from another program, it is often useful to first call a command with --save-template, then let the user edit the message, and then call the same command with --file.
