First off I am a bit of a Git noob.

I have successfully merged my dev branch to my production branch with conflicts. I know I can edit the conflicts manually but I read in merge tools and liked what I heard so I thought I would try it out however the option is grey out on the conflict files.

I did post a detailed explanation of this problem on SO but ironically I can't post it here due to spam rules.

I have looked around a bit more since posting that question and now I am really confused about why merge tools does not show for me. I can clearly see the conflicts in my branch from merging and I can see the conflict icons next to the files/folders however when I right click to use the merge tools it is greyed out.

How can I go about finding out why this is happening and solving the issue?

One more question: I accidently added one of my conflicts to the index without resolving the conflicts (started playing around trying to get the tools working), is there a way to revert that action?


Edit: I found out how to remove it from git index thanks to SO who hinted at the git staging view Smile

what is SO ? How about filing a bug in Bugzilla ?
