I have two branches with the following files in there:

branch a:


branch b:


I want to merge them, so that I get both files from a and b (and files that exist in both should normally be merged)! is that possbile?

  • Why don't you simply get both branches and merge them manually? – Ramhound Sep 27 '11 at 16:48
  • clone two times and copy and add? – reox Sep 27 '11 at 16:55

    You migt want to ask this over on StackOverflow... programmers over there might know more about this stuff. – cwheeler33 Sep 27 '11 at 18:32

this might help: http://git-scm.com/book/en/Git-Branching-Basic-Branching-and-Merging

in your case you would do the following:

  • git checkout a (you will switch to branch a)
  • git merge b (this will merge all changes from branch b into branch a)
  • git commit -a (this will commit your changes)

take a look at above link to get the full picture.
