STG-REBASE(1)                 StGit Manual                 STG-REBASE(1)

NAME         top

       stg-rebase - Move the stack base to another point in history

SYNOPSIS         top

       stg rebase [OPTIONS] [committish]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Pop all patches from the current stack, move the stack base to
       the given new base and push the patches back.

       Merge conflicts may arise when patches are being pushed-back onto
       the stack. If this occurs, resolve the conflicts and then
       continue the rebase with the following sequence:

           stg add --update
           stg refresh
           stg goto top-patch

       Or to skip the conflicting patch:

           stg undo --hard
           stg push

OPTIONS         top

       -i, --interactive
           Interactively manipulate patches in editor

       -n, --nopush
           Do not push back patches after rebasing

       -m, --merged
           Check for patches that may have been merged upstream.

           When pushing-back patches, each patch is checked to see if
           its changes already exist in the new stack base. If a patch’s
           changes are detected to have been merged, the patch will
           still exist in the stack, but become empty after the rebase

           Instead of using the current time as the committer date, use
           the author date of the commit as the committer date.

           Automatically create a temporary stash before the operation
           begins, and apply it after the operation completes. This
           allows a rebase to be performed on a dirty work tree. Note
           however that the final stash application may result in
           non-trivial conflicts.

           Either "allow" or "disallow" pushing a patch with conflicts.

           Using --conflicts=allow (or just --conflicts) allows pushing
           a patch that may result in unresolved merge conflicts. The
           patch will be pushed and files with conflicts will be left
           with conflict markers to be resolved manually; or the
           operation undone with stg undo --hard. This is the default
           behavior and also corresponds to the
           "stgit.push.allow-conflicts" variable being set to "true".

           Using --conflicts=disallow disallows pushing any patch that
           would result in merge conflicts. The operation will stop on
           the last patch that can be pushed without conflicts. This
           behavior can be configured by setting
           "stgit.push.allow-conflicts" to "false".
