git-rebase--interactive.sh: preserve-merges fails on merges created w…
…ith no-ff 'git rebase' uses 'git merge' to preserve merges (-p). This preserves the original merge commit correctly, except when the original merge commit was created by 'git merge --no-ff'. In this case, 'git rebase' will fail to preserve the merge, because during 'git rebase', 'git merge' will simply fast-forward and skip the commit. For example: B / \ A---M / ---o---O---P---Q If we try to rebase M onto P, we lose the merge commit and this happens: A---B / ---o---O---P---Q To correct this, we simply do a "no fast-forward" on all merge commits when rebasing. Since by the time we decided to do a 'git merge' inside 'git rebase', it means there was a merge originally, so 'git merge' should always create a merge commit regardless of what the merge branches look like. This way, when rebase M onto P from the above example, we get: B / \ A---M / ---o---O---P---Q Signed-off-by: Andrew Wong <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <firstname.lastname@example.org>
