The draft has just been updated with 2 articles contributed by Jake
about rebasing merges, so I am cc'ing more people involved in those
discussions.

Thanks Jake!

I find this section of the draft pretty close to my own vision of what
and how has been discussed, except for a few issues.

[all quotations below are taken from the draft]

> Some discussion about --preserve-merges and compatibility with scripts

What article by Jacob is actually meant here I have no idea, please
check, as this one, and the RFC this refers to, was written by me, not
by Jacob, and it is the outline of potential method of actually rebasing
merges that is discussed in the next paragraph, so it likely belongs
right after the next paragraph:

> After the discussions in the above article Sergey posted an outline of a
> potential method for actually rebasing a merge (as opposed to recreating
> it from scratch) which used a process of git cherry-pick -mN of the

The reference to:

    Rebasing merges: a jorney to the ultimate solution (Road Clear)
    (written by Sergey Organov)

belongs here, if at all.

In addition, I'd like to see a minor edition to the following:

> Sergey replied that he thinks the solution produces the same result as
> his updated strategy.

This has been said in the context that assumed lack of conflicts during
application of both strategies. Something like this, maybe:

"Sergey replied that he thinks the solution produces the same result as
his updated strategy, at least when none of the strategies produce any
conflicts."

Next, this is very close, but not exactly right:

> Further suggestions to the strategy were proposed and tested, ultimately
> resulting in Sergey proposing the addition of using the original merge
> commit as a merge base during the final step.

This was not an addition, this was a fix of particular mistake in the
original RFC that has been revealed during testing. I didn't get it
right at first that it's original merge commit that must be used as
merge base, so my original proposal ended up implicitly using wrong
merge base, that is the one computed by "git merge-base U1' U2'".

Something along these lines may fit better:

"Further suggestions to the strategy were proposed and tested,
ultimately resulting in Sergey proposing the fix to his method,
specifically using the original merge commit as a merge base during the
final step."

I'd also like a reference to the final fixed [RFC v2] be added right
here. The reference is:

https://public-inbox.org/git/87r2oxe3o1.fsf@javad.com/

Thanks a lot!

-- Sergey

Jake wrote the article below the above line. His article summarizes
the discussions that happened following your email that is linked to
in the above line. The above line is actually the title of Jake's
second article.

> and it is the outline of potential method of actually rebasing

Here "the above article" means the Jake's "branch -l: print useful
info whilst rebasing a non-local branch" article above the current
article.

You call it a reference but it is actually the title of the article
that Jake wrote. Yes, it contains a link to your email, but that is
just because we want to make it easy and straightforward for people
who are interested in all the discussions to find them.

It has been like this since the very beginning of Git Rev News. For
example in the first edition
(https://git.github.io/rev_news/2015/03/25/edition-1/) the first
article was contributed by Junio so you can see "Promoting Git
developers (written by Junio C Hamano)" where "Promoting Git
developers" is a link to the following email (yeah the link is not
valid anymore because Gmane is no more) that I wrote:

https://public-inbox.org/git/CAP8UFD1+rC0FjisSddDcyn1E_75wtBU9pEpUcQX5zNtd4zKYFQ@mail.gmail.com/

Ok with this change.

Ok with this change except for s/the fix to his method/a fix to his
method/ as I think it reads better with "a".

Ok to add this link.

I just pushed the changes

Thanks for your comments,

Yeah, I see now, it was confusion on my side. Thanks for clarification!

The rest is also fine with me, and thanks for editorial changes!

Just a little correction. I suppose Chris actually meant the "rebase -i:
offer to recreate merge commits" article written by Jake and not the
"branch -l: print useful info whilst rebasing a non-local branch" article.

That said, I read the draft and found it good except for two minor issues,

1. I see the following sentence in the "Rebasing merges: a jorney to the
ultimate solution (Road Clear) (written by Jacob Keller)" article

	"A few examples were tried, but it was proven that the original
	concept did not work, as dropped commits could end up being
	replaid into the merge commits, turning them into "evil"
	merges."

I'm not sure if 'replaid' is proper English assuming the past tense of
replay was intended there (which I think is 'replayed').


2. I see a minor Markdown syntax issue in the "branch -l: print useful
info whilst rebasing a non-local branch" article.

	... reworked his original patch to improve `git branch
	--list̀

Specifically, in the '--list̀' part. I guess it should be "--list`".

It could have meant, say, "reapplied", -- we need to ask the author.

While we are at it, please also consider to replace "original concept"
by "original algorithm", as it didn't work due to a mistake in the
algorithm as opposed to failure of the concept itself.

I agree and changed it to "replayed".

Yeah it could but I would say that it is not very likely compared to
"replayed", so I changed it to "replayed". And yeah I can change it to
something else if Jake (who is Cc'ed) prefers.

Ok, it's now "original algorithm".

Replayed is accurate.

Thanks,

You're welcome!

I'm sorry to say that I read only part of the draft  when I sent my
previous email though I accidentally didn't mention it explicitly.

Now that I have read the draft completely I find a few typos in the
"Developer Spotlight: Jiang Xin" section:

1.
"... because I feel it is hard to track changes of GitHub UI and the
book will become obsolte very quickly."

obsolte -> obsolete


2.
"We also developped ..."

developped -> developed


On seeing the section "Light reading" to be empty, I thought I could
suggest something. I'm not sure whether you take Stack Overflow answers
for a light reading but I found the following answer to be interesting,

https://stackoverflow.com/a/6521223/5614968

That's all.

No problem.

Yeah.

Sure. Both typos have been fixed. Thanks!

I am a bit reluctant to add random SO pages to this section. I think
we have used it to suggest real articles and I would prefer to keep it
that way. Maybe we could add another section with links from SO or
other Q & A sites, but until we decide to do that and find people
interested to regularly contribute to it, I would prefer not to add
such links.

Usually Jakub Narebski (in Cc) and a few other persons contributes to
the Other News sections ("Various", "Light Reading" and "Git tools and
sites") sometimes just before publication time, and I might contribute
a little to them too this evening or tomorrow. So it's not a big deal
if there is not much in these sections at this time.

Thanks,
Christian.
