Hi,

Is there a mechanism for exchanging the rerere resolutions, so that future
fixups, e.g. future clashes on pu rather than master, can be sent with patch
series?

My current use case that there is a large patch [1] for updating long to
size_t for use on Windows, which notes that it will have clashes with pu,
but doesn't appear to have any method  of sending a rerere resolution (which
the author is already aware of) to the list. Being able to flag up such
fixes should simplify such conflict resolutions.

I had some very rough ideas about how the resolutions should look rather
similar to three-way conflict markers, with the resolution as the 'base'
(between the ||| - ||| marks), which would be resolved via a --base merge
strategy.

However if there is already a method for exchanging resolutions, where
should I look?

That is not an answer to the question.
If it helps, I can rebase the first patch onto git.git/master, and the
cherry-pick the next patches. That can happen next week or so.
And then let it go through the normal pu->next->master->git-for-windows workflow.

Thanks for the offer, but I should be OK. dscho has already asked that for testing on Git for Windows I rebase my series back onto master, rather than pu. The series is at https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/pull/2179#issuecomment-491095412
