3.4.3 Resolving conflicts

Occasionally an update may result in conflicts – this happens when you and somebody else have modified the same part of the same file and git cannot figure out how to merge the two versions together. When this happens, you must manually merge the two versions.

If you need some documentation to understand and resolve conflicts, see paragraphs How conflicts are presented and How to resolve conflicts in git merge man page.

If all else fails, you can follow the instructions in Reverting all local changes. Be aware that this eliminates any changes you have made!
