Discussion on: Merge vs rebase

Thanks! Rebasing might suffice in some cases, particularly in a rapid development flow when topic branches are short-lived, and the team appreciate a linear history more than a more verbose log. Otherwise, merging tends to be friendlier. 😉

Here's my strategy. Fork out the feature branch from master, say my-new-feature. Now every mate from my team branches from the my-new-feature branch for their part of work and keeps it merging back to my-feature-branch. Whille I keep rebasing the my-new-feature branch with master on daily basis. Once the feature is ready, the my-feature-branch is merged back to master.
