      Description

      OpenShift tooling is working around missing recursive merge when importing into an existing Project ("use existing")

      When using the git command line one is told to merge by using the recursive merge startegy:

      git merge -s recursive -X ours foo
      

      When we created the JBoss Tools for OpenShift there was no recursive merge in EGit/JGit. We therefore worked around it by cloning the OpenShift repository and copying stuff over.
      EGit 3.0 introduced the recursive merge strategy and put it to the default that's being used:
