re: ELI5: Git Rebase vs. Merge VIEW POST

re: I might be miss something, but I always merge. What is the point of having two tools doing almost the same thing? One of them is potentially danger...
 

It's not about how it looks like. Rebasing allows backtracking to specific commits when hunting bugs. It makes git-bisect a very powerful tool for pin-pointing buggy commits. When you know which small commit introduced the bug, you are able to fix it more quickly. This is also why smaller commits are way better than large commits.

 

It's possible to backtrack to specific commits and git-bisect with merge as well.
