No. I'm not pulling this useless commit message: "Merge tag 'v4.20-rc1'" with absolutely _zero_ explanation for why that merge was done. Guys, stop doing this. Because I will stop pulling them. If you can't be bothered to explain exactly why you're doing a merge, I can't be bothered to pull the result. Commit messages are important. They explain why something was done. Merge commits are to some degree *more* important, because they do odd things and the reason is not obvious from the code ("Oh, it's a oneliner obvious fix"). So merge commits without a reason for them are simply not acceptable. Linus
