git imerge: Perform a merge or rebase between two Git branches incrementally.

Conflicts between branches are tracked down to pairs of individual commits, to simplify conflict resolution.

Start imerge-based rebase (checkout the branch to be rebased, first):

git imerge rebase branch_to_rebase_onto

Start imerge-based merge (checkout the branch to merge into, first):

git imerge merge branch_to_be_merged

Show ASCII diagram of in-progress merge or rebase:

git imerge diagram

Continue imerge operation after resolving conflicts (git add the conflicted files, first):

git imerge continue --no-edit

Wrap up imerge operation, after all conflicts are resolved:

git imerge finish

Abort imerge operation, and return to the previous branch:

git-imerge remove && git checkout previous_branch
