Unsupervised release finish (automatic merge messages) #287

wants to merge 2 commits into


None yet
2 participants

Currently release finish, while accepting a message for the tag, will still bring up $EDITOR for the merge into master and develop respectively. This makes it a hassle to release finish in a build script. Since I don't think there's a need for custom messages here (in fact I'd discourage them), I simply added a fixed message in each case.

Instead of this patch you can just set an environment variable:


No editor will be brought up on merging.

I'm aware of this, but think it should be enforced inside git flow...

You could add the export of the variable in git-flow and your are all set, for example after https://github.com/nvie/gitflow/blob/develop/git-flow#L41 you can add export GIT_MERGE_AUTOEDIT=no and it's enforced in git-flow.

In my fork, git-flow (AVH Edition), you can set this in a file that will be imported by git-flow (see petervanderdoes/gitflow#39)

Any updates made to git-flow (AVH Edition) are almost impossible to make into easy pull requests for the original git-flow. The source code of the fork has diverged to much to make this an easy process and therefor we won't.
