I was trying to rebuild some history and found myself trying to use some
options with git merge which are available in git commit:
git merge \
--date "2013-12-31 23:59:59 +0000" \
--author "Happy New Year <firstname.lastname@example.org>" \
But unfortunately, unlike git commit, git merge doesn't support either
--date or --author.
I can work around with environment variables:
GIT_AUTHOR_DATE="2013-12-31 23:59:59 +0000" \
GIT_AUTHOR_NAME="Happy New Year" \
git merge current-year
But I'd like to know if there's a specific reason for git merge to not
support --date and --author ?
