Re: Rebase the tree?
There are 2 main issues I can see with rebasing:
1) Rebuilding the history will change the commit hashes on master, which
will throw off our 5.1 cherry-picked commit messages that refer to the
master commit they came from (there are at least 4 that this would happen
2) The GitLab merge requests would be completely confused and each
contributor would have to manually fixup their branches and force push to
them to clean it up.
For CI systems and the like, they can just do a shallow clone of the repo
and avoid those commits (at this point we are already 14 commits ahead of
the most recent (a clone of the last 5 commits is only 24.48MiB instead of
the 204.37MiB for a full clone).
