IIRC it can be tricky to rebase master on top of a cleaned up feature
branch which is why I’d try to avoid doing that more than once just at
the end of the review cycle. Especially when master is in flux.

I’m unsure about review then squash, as one could introduce errors there.
For the big sys_db patch(es) I had two branches, one with regular
development commits and one with a cleaned up history. This is overkill
for most branches but probably worth doing on larger things.

As a sidenote, I have some time set aside for December to work on our
CI setup some more so we get integration builds where feature branches
are merged into master and built for testing so we know a branch is
clean to merge & ship.
