Thanks, Joey! This is awesome...I had to try it out :) --JasonBlevins

I am really happy to hear of this new feature, that I was (more or less) secretly dreaming of. But - and that's why I'm still insanely editing this wiki inside a web browser - I wonder how I'll use it for real: my own master branch contains a few dozens merge commits, and one is created every time I git pull ikiwiki repository (or another clone of it, living on one of my other boxes that by chance had Internet access more recently). I do not want to clutter Joey's repository with these commits, so I guess I have to learn some more of Git everything-is-possible world (a nice thing is: I am not limited anymore to "Emacs can do it", and I'm now in a position to say "Git can do it" or "ikiwiki already does it", depending on the situation). Well, let's focus. Git wizards amongst us (let's use this wiki as if it were, ok?), what would you suggest? I was thinking of having a new branch in my cloned repository, dedicated to editing this wiki; I could use rebase instead of fetch+merge to get the new upstream commits into this special-purpose branch. I guess it would work nicely if I had only one offline box with not-yet-pushed changes at the same time, but would break in awful and various ways when it is not the case. Any alternative idea? --intrigeri

Not that I'm very careful to avoid pushing merge commits (see git log ;-), but I sometimes use git pull --rebase to pull changes from a repo. That will rebase your local changes on top of the changes pulled, avoiding the merge commits. I'm sure more involved solutions are possible. --Joey

I decided to use my local master branch as a copy of origin/master (kitenet) and move my local modifications to a separate branch. I'm using master to edit the wiki but there is still the problem of new upstream commits since the last pull. I already had this problem as Joey had pushed some changes while I was editing locally. Not knowing about pull --rebase, I took the long way out: branch, roll back HEAD, rebase, and merge. That was too much work...It looks like pull --rebase is the way to go. --JasonBlevins

Awesome ! --?xma
