In my experience, there is rarely a good reason to rebase (rebasing
because the CI system tests the contributor's branch rather than the
resulting merge is not a good reason; the CI system should be fixed
instead) and asking everyone to rebase just slows things down. Please
let's not go down that road, if possible.
Agreed on the CI part. That should either be available for
configuration to the maintainers or be strictly set to rebase the PR
against master before building and testing it. One thing to note here
if you want to allow contributors to change CI and build system
One strong argument for rebasing PRs is to have a clean upstream git history.
Other than that, I like the idea of source git and I'm looking
to using it, once the synchronization issues are resolved. Thanks for
working on it.
Thank you for your interest!
