git-squash-merge tool

git-squash-merge is a bash script to help squash merge a given branch into the current branch. This tool is helpful for synchronizing git repositories which work with gerrit.

This command squash merges all commits from a given branch into the current branch. By default the changes are committed with a commit message containing the list of all squashed commits.


git-squash-merge [--no-list] [--no-commit] <branch> [<commit msg>]"


  • <branch> specifies the name of branch to merge into current branch.
  • <commit msg> is an optional parameter specifying text to add to the commit message.


  • --no-list when used the commit message will not include the list of squashed commits.
  • --no-commit when used, the tool squashes and stages the changes but does not commit"
