How to compress multiple commits into one in Git by rebasing?Problem is that if you are not the maintainer of a repository merging creates
more complicated history than rebasing.
# Git merging history
a - b - c
2 - 3 - 4
1 - a -2 -b -c -3 -4 -Z
Rebasing creates single line history which is easier to maintain
and further more you can compress your work into single commit by
following commands described at this blog
git log --oneline
git rebase -i SHA1
Nice trick is to use rebase --autosquash. Check help for more info!
Another solution is to use a merge command with --squash option.
