Here is a simplified version of my script. It does only the merge. If
you want to use it, I recommend adding this script to a separate branch
so that you can track which branched were added or removed to your
features branch (you will modify the $branches variable in the script).
echo >&2 "fatal: $*"
if [ -z "$EXEC_OK" ]; then
# If this script is tracked by repository, checking out another
# branch could delete it so we copy it to tmp and run it from
script=$(mktemp -t notmuch-integrate.XXXXXX)
cp "$0" "$script"
exec sh "$script" "$@"
[ $EXEC_OK != 1 ] && die "Error: something went wrong"
trap "rm '$0'" EXIT
git branch -D integration/features || :
git checkout -b integration/features master
git merge $branches
