- Subject: Question about git: merging to gccgo branch
I'm trying to merge trunk revision
7c46e71d016c86971ac26c6fa38d76482859f296 to the gccgo branch. I did
this by checking out the branch ("git checkout origin/devel/gccgo")
and running "git merge master".
I'm not sure whether I should keep reporting this kind of operation to
gcc-patches now that we've switched to git, but that is not my
After testing the result of "git merge master", I run "git push origin
HEAD:devel/gccgo" to push the result to gcc.gnu.org. That fails with
git push origin HEAD:devel/gccgo

I don't want to send 581 e-mails. I would be happy not sending any
e-mails at all. I would also be happy sending 1 e-mail.
What should I do?
