Hi Konstantin, the idea of using merge --squash comes from:
1. the need to have a clean history of the changes: the developer that implements something (e.g. a feature or a bugfix) on a topic branch could have done it creating several commits in her/his development branch, commits that are not interesting for the overall project. E.g. s/he could have committed, then run some tests, found bugs or improvements in the code, and then have committed again. This is relevant only for the developer. 2. the need to push only the binaries to reduce push time. A merge without --squash creates a commit merge that has as parents the topic and the develop merge. A push transfers all of them, including the commits on the develop branch, that contain the binaries. -Angelo -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
