2. git add <conflicted files>
3. git rebase –continue
Once you’ve merged and do a
git status I got:
Your branch and 'origin/feature/branch' have diverged,
and have 168 and 52 different commits each, respectively.
(use "git pull" to merge the remote branch into yours)
This would be because I’d already pushed my feature branch. i.e. you’re changing the history of all those commits by doing the
