When using the Bamboo branch updater functionality I am constantly getting failed builds due to git merge conflicts in a file that contains the application version number.
On developer PC's this is avoided through the use of a custom merge driver to always select the local copy of the file when a conflict is detected
This is done by defining a gitattributes file within the repository, and within this file defining a custom merge driver (called "ours") as such:
Then on the developers PC by running the command:
git config --global merge.ours.driver true
The global .gitconfig file on the PC then shows:
... [merge "ours"] driver = true
How can I configure Bamboo's Git capability to to observe a custom merge driver when the branch updater performs a merge?
