I would suggest making use of 'git commit --fixup' or 'git commit --squash' which creates a commit that is specially-named such that you can later squash everything together with `git rebase --autosquash'. It's really transformed how I work on large patchsets.



You da real mvp.

It is ridiculous how many nice features git has accumulated through the years, but their discoverability is... not excellent -- partially because of how many options we now have. It's a vicious circle.


`git commit --fixup` very nice, I never particularly liked the workflow of "git rebase -i <hash>"


Eh, `git rebase -i master` (or some other branch) isn't so bad, or you can always rebase against origin/<your-branch>.

But yes, --autosquash looks nice.


Great tip, thanks.
