Hello Git,

I am in progress of rebasing

~/e/Auth/Mojolicious/Plugin $ git rebase aa3376
Created autostash: 4018bc7
hint: Waiting for your editor to close the file...


while I am in editor I switched to different console to view created autostash:

~/e/Auth $ git stash list

and see nothing

but can view stash by its id:
~/e/Auth $ git show 4018bc7
commit 4018bc7bc870eb37aa35f40a0f612ca55a586045
Merge: a790392 674e39f
.....


Expected result: I should be able to see this autostash when `git stash list`

Best regards,
Eugen Konkov

If you run with GIT_TRACE=1, you can see that the autostash feature uses
"git stash create" and not "git stash push". That creates the stash
commit but _doesn't_ push it onto the stash list.

So it's working as intended. The rationale comes from the very
first commit adding autostash, 587947750b (rebase: implement
--[no-]autostash and rebase.autostash, 2013-05-12), which says:

    The advantage of this approach is that we do not affect the normal
    stash's reflogs, making the autostash invisible to the end-user.  This
    means that you can use 'git stash' during a rebase as usual.
