How exactly is this used?
I gave up trying to have CVS merges autimatically recognized upon
import, and tried to follow Matthias Urlichs' advice to fake it using
the grafts file.
I have this situation:
Branch point (actually this is the inital import into CVS):
Child: 9956b03b956994bb4e2cee4161f3626bcfd71924 (Das U-Boot: Universal Boot
Child: 7309612797ed5e6b3b20027e28bca970b4f6b8fd (Initial revision)
End of branch to merge (in CVS 18.104.22.168):
Parent: 0bb9c6d97b195bd0efcdda02f109e6d1519074a9 (Das U-Boot: Universal Boot
This is the commit where I would like to show the branch merged in
(before; this is the first real commit in CVS):
Parent: de180e6daa529dc78668c99bdf17a9cdd440782d (Initial revision)
Child: 699b13a6064e642280caffaa83c10b359a6c1114 (* Fix mdelay() on TRAB - this
was still the debugging version with)
I tried with a grafts file like this:
The display in gitk --all gets changed a bit (before the branch was
the leftmost line, now it's the rightmost one), but it's still a
dangling head, and the selected "merge point" (commit 24ee89) is
still displayed with just one parent (de180e) - I would expect to
also see d9af3c listed as parent, and the branch merging in here?
Am I missing something?
