I am not on the mailing list so please CC me. I am running git 1.8.1 on Fedora 18.

I aam having what appears to be a problem. Here is the sequence which generally describes what I did and what happened:

    git  checkout  -b  test1  master
    git  am  0001-simple-1.patch
    git  checkout  -b  test2  master
git am 0001-simple-2.patch ### this is known to conflict with 0001-simple-1.patch
    git  checkout  test1
    git  merge  test2
[here git-merge detects a conflict]
    git  mergetool                               ###to resolve the conflict
[conflict resolved]
    git  commit  -a -s
    git  log
[shows two commits -- one for simple-2 and one for the merge]
    git  format-patch  master..HEAD
[two patch files created: 0001-simple-1.patch and 0002-simple-2.patch]
[0002-simple-2.patch and 0001-simple-2.patch are exactly equal and do not reflect the resolved conflict]

If you do git-diff between <commit-patch-1> and HEAD, you get something different that you got from format-patch.

1. Bug ... format-patch is broken

2. Feature ... that is the way it works

3. Pilot error ... ??

I can create a good version of patch-2 manually but should I have to?

Color me foolish but I assumed I could do git-format-patch in one branch and then use git-am to recreate that branch elsewhere.
