Subject Re: Git Policy/Preference: how to fold in feature branches? squash?

I think most things in git are. That's why I wasn't really excited
about having an official "how to commit" guide -- it is really a
subjective decision how to fold in a set of commits. I sometimes even

git merge --no-ff branch

to explicitly preserve an explicit merge commit even when a fast
forward is possible. This way I see the whole feature as a deviation
from the main line of development.

I agree. It helps a lot, especially for self-contained things.
