    When updating Unity it's a constant nuisance to have to update my git settings to point to the new Smart Merge location.

    It would be nice if the hub installed this, and possibly any other useful tools, separately to it's own folder independent of the Unity installation, so the path would remain constant.

    Will it work if you copy it somewhere else and run it from there?
    It's probably not updated by Unity very often, so you could get away with using the "older" version and only updating your local copy when a new major release arrives or when the changelog mentions a change in the tool.

    If it does work, this might be a workaround until it can be officially installed in a separate dir.
