I've used git for years, and I've still not managed to get my head around when to use rebase (and use it correctly) and when just to merge from a more primary branch. I always seem to screw stuff up with rebase, but merge can mean a lot of headaches with conflicts at times.

I know "rebase" causes a lot of misunderstanding for a lot of people and I already have this problems to start using this powerful feature sometimes ago.

I'm thinking to create a simple guide in practice about "rebase" and "cherry-pick" do you think it's will be helpful?

If it's something which even a small number of people have a problem with, it shows that existing documentation/examples/guides are not covering the topic well enough. If you can create a guide which breaks down the concepts and reasons to use it in a way people get the message and can use it properly, then it's absolutely worth it.

I'd certainly read it.

I will think in a more practical way to apply these concepts and share them with the community.

Thanks for your feedback!
