Subject: [PATCH v2 1/1] rebase: deprecate --preserve-merges
Date: Mon, 11 Mar 2019 12:57:35 -0700 (PDT)
Message-ID: <f6990f28c028e04c5d237878d7fbb2160dd7dac9.1552334254.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.158.v2.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

We have something much better now: --rebase-merges (which is a
complete re-design --preserve-merges, with a lot of issues fixed such as
the inability to reorder commits with --preserve-merges).
