App::Pinto::Command::merge - join two stack histories together
pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT merge [OPTIONS] FROM_STACK [INTO_STACK]
!! THIS COMMAND IS EXPERIMENTAL !!
This command joins the history of one stack with another. At present, it is only capable of doing a "fast-forward" merge when the head of FROM_STACK is a direct descendant of the head of INTO_STACK.
The first mandatory argument is the name of the stack to merge from. The second optional argument is the name of the stack to merge to. If the second argument is not specified, it defaults to whichever stack is currently marked as the default. Here are some examples:
pinto ... merge dev # Merge the "dev" stack into the default stack pinto ... merge dev prod # Merge the "dev" stack into the "prod" stack
Go through all the motions, but do not actually commit any changes to the repository. At the conclusion, a diff showing the changes that would have been made will be displayed. Use this option to see how upgrades would potentially impact the stack.
Use TEXT as the revision history log message. If you do not use the
--message option or the
--use-default-message option, then you will be prompted to enter the message via your text editor. Use the
VISUAL environment variables to control which editor is used. A log message is not required whenever the
--dry-run option is set, or if the action did not yield any changes to the repository.
Use the default value for the revision history log message. Pinto will generate a semi-informative log message just based on the command and its arguments. If you set an explicit message with
--use- default-message option will be silently ignored.
