Linus doesn't like GitHub's pull requests (github.com/torvalds)

I'd be really curious to hear exactly what is wrong with github's pull requests (seem fine to me).

And what "horrible things" does github do to commits?

That conversation is happening at https://github.com/torvalds/diveclog/pull/18. Basically Linus dislikes the commit log generation because the information in it drops essential information.
