I believe that you're talking about Git, right?
When you have conflict between your file and the file that you're merging, you have two choices:
"Mine" - Your file will be used to solve the conflicts
"Theirs" - The Target file will be used to solve the conflicts.
It depends on what you need to use to solve the file conflict.
Oh... then it was good I asked first. Because that wasn't obvious to me. I wasn't able to find any references that described this either.
Is this the wording normally used for such operation? Is there perhaps more clearer wording? Or am I the only one to find this confusing?
Let's say we have two branches branch1 and branch2. Assume we are in branch2 and we merge the last commit of branch1 into the branch2 and we get conflicts. Now:
Hi I'd just like to point out that Henrique's answer is incorrect for SourceTree 2.5.2 (current as of June 2017) per my understanding and experience (perhaps I misunderstood). This is a git repo.
Here is the state before merge: branch v4 has all the new stuff, branch develop is behind. I'm merging v4 into develop.
Current branch: develop
Merge v4 -> Develop
Mine == Use the file as it is in Develop, ie. the same branch I am in
Theirs == Use the file as it is in v4, ie. the branch I am not in
This makes sense to me (it's what I expected), but appears to be the opposite of Henrique's answer.
Can I +1 this? Not only does the UI use "mine" and "theirs", but when merging using a diff tool it creates temp files names myfile.LOCAL.txt and myfile.REMOTE.txt .. so mine is local, and theirs is remote?
Why not just have "resolve using branchname1" and have the file called myfile.branchname1.txt in the resolve tool, and "resolve using branchname2" and have the file called myfile.branchname2.txt in the resolve tool?
As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
