Thanks Tor Arne. Can you elaborate a bit on the commands used for a prefixed subtree merge? Or point to a page that explains it?

One way to do this is with a prefixed subtree merge without squashing the history of controls2.

What ossi (?) referred to was using git replace to inject the history of controls, but I’m not sure how that would look so perhaps he can outline that approach.

The consensus from the contributor's summit session regarding https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-79454 was that qtquickcontrols2 should be merged into qtdeclarative:


In terms of Git, what is the best way to proceed with this? Which commands should be used? Any specific things to be aware of? For example, one note made during the session was:

“Graft history in, don't merge it.”
