One of the downsides both the git-am and cherry-pick workflows are that they invalidate or otherwise omit commit signatures.
git-merge on the other hand does preserve the signature as the original commit is intact, and the merge commit is where the signature of the gentoo developer is introduced. I agree clean history is valuable, but verifiable attribution may in fact be more important. -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux: Dev, Infra Lead, Foundation Trustee & Treasurer E-Mail : robb...@gentoo.org GnuPG FP : 11ACBA4F 4778E3F6 E4EDF38E B27B944E 34884E85 GnuPG FP : 7D0B3CEB E9B85B1F 825BCECF EE05E6F6 A48F6136
