We can't change the "... Verzeichnis *rebase-merge* ..." part of the message,
because "rebase-merge" is a substitution and we have to use all of them.

Not sure why you change "vorhanden ist" to "gefunden werden sollte".
Maybe we should use a combination? See below.

[PATCH] l10n: de.po: improve translation of a rebase message

The word "still" was translated as "bereits", change
it to "noch". "valuable" was translated as "nützlich"
which is more like "useful" than "valuable", change it
to "schützenswert".
