It had a good run, but its design was irreparably limited. So I came up with
a redesign:--rebase-merges. It seems to work all right, so now it is time to
start letting go of the previous design.

Johannes Schindelin (1):
  rebase: deprecate --preserve-merges

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).

Hi Johannes

It's great to see this. Do we need the deprecation warning in both 
builtin/rebase.c and rebase--preserve-merges.sh? Won't that end up 
warning twice - maybe that's a good thing but if we go for only one I 
prefer the wording in rebase--preserve-merges.sh

Best Wishes

Phillip

Good point.

I also considered adding a warning to the todo list, in case the rebase is
run interactively, but that would have required way too many changes in
the test suite (the test cases using `FAKE_LINES` select lines from the
todo list based on their line number, not their content, which does not
play well with inserting 3 lines with a warning at the beginning of the
todo list).

Ciao,
Dscho

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).

It had a good run, but its design was irreparably limited. So I came up with
a redesign:--rebase-merges. It seems to work all right, so now it is time to
start letting go of the previous design.

Changes since v1:

 * The term --rebase-merges is now marked as such in the deprecation notice
   in git rebase's manual.
 * The deprecation warning is now printed only in builtin/rebase.c, not
   repeated in git-rebase--preserve-merges.sh.

Johannes Schindelin (1):
  rebase: deprecate --preserve-merges

An internal user reported the following "bug" they ran into:

 1. They ran "git pull --rebase=preserve"
 2. warning: git rebase --preserve-merges is deprecated. Use --rebase-merges instead.

This is very confusing, since the user issued "--rebase=preserve", *not*
"--preserve-merges".

We could detect that we came from "git pull" and pass down the argv we
used blah blah, but how about just describing things a bit more in the
warning, e.g.:

    warning: the "preserve" backend for 'git rebase' has been
    deprecated. You invoked git with "rebase --preserve-merges", either
    directly, or via "pull --rebase=preserve".

    Use the new "rebase merges" backend of "git rebase" instead, invoked
    via "rebase --rebase-merges" or "pull --rebase=merges". Note that
    the new backend may yield different results, see the "git rebase"
    documentation for details.

Don't forget `pull.rebase`.

And the proposed text makes it sound as if the results of
`--rebase=merges` is wrong, while I would contend that it is actually more
correct than `--rebase=preserve`'s output.

In general, I do agree with the direction of making the description more
general rather than trying to teach `git-rebase--preserve-merges.sh` from
where it was called and showing a different deprecation message.

Do you want to take the lead on this? If so, be my guest, I still have to
prepare Git for Windows for -rc0...

Ciao,
Dscho
