There are basically two ways of doing this:


git reset HEAD~2
git add -u .
git commit

This is the easier way of doing it but it is limited. With method
b) you can squash together two arbitrary commits not just the two top ones.


git rebase -i HEAD~2

An editor will pop up, find the top/HEAD commit
and change the first word from 'pick' to 's', then save
and exit. The editor will pop up again and you will provide
a single commit message, save and exit. Now you have a single
commit that you can use git format-patch on.

's' stands for 'squash' in this case.

Hope this helps,
