Thanks for that.

"git rerere" works behind the scenes to fix up merge conflicts that you
have fixed once before. All it does is record the diff of conflicted
files after the merge fails and then the new versions of those files when
you do the next commit. I know of no way to get any useful information
out of it.

The git show below should, however, be sufficient and looks just like
what I did on Friday.

I have a plan for getting rid of these - I will start on it today or
tomorrow.
