git annex merge [branch]
When run without any parameters, this performs the same merging (and merge conflict resolution) that is done by the sync command, but without pushing or pulling any data.
When a branch to merge is specified, this merges it, using the same merge conflict resolution as the sync command. This is especially useful on an adjusted branch, because it applies the same adjustment to the branch before merging it.
When annex.resolvemerge is set to false, merge conflict resolution will not be done.
