I work in a company where we maintain Linux kernel and make few
changes on top of it. I have a public Linux kernel (by public I mean
internal to company however, few employees have cloned from the
repository). The version of Linux kernel is 3.0 and with few changes
on master branch.
Now I want to pull the latest kernel 3.1-rc7 and apply our patches on
top it. We are very much sure that our existing changes would not
cause any conflict. I was thinking about rebasing the code, however
the book "Pro Git" says "Do not rebase commits that you have pushed to
a public repository.".
Now I am confused. Can someone help?
Thanks in advance.
