Git vs SVN: can I have single change in history for several branches?

We have to keep 2 product versions. Now, some changes in each version have to be backported to another version. In SVN, if I made “change” to version 1, I merge this revision to version 2 and give comment like: “Merged ‘change’ from v1”. This is awkward in many ways. Even worse if I merge […]

Am I doing it wrong? Merging SVN changes from trunk into a git branch. Using merge –squash

We use branches to do our work and keep trunk pristine for the most part. Before merging my changes from my branch into trunk, I want to make sure that I’ve got the latest changes from svn/trunk into my local branch. It’s taken me a bit to figure it out but here’s the workflow I’ve […]
