ah, please, let us not start over again. Rebasing is a problem only for
projects that have long standing forks maintained by external parties,
like Linux kernel project. We do _not_ have external forks maintained
externally as far as I know. The rest is just subjective speculations.

Because the commit log is the _only_ _authoritative_ representation of
the project state. 

I do pretty much all the heaving lifting for the project. Please do not
make me raise a bloody JIRA for every bloody commit. You do not get
enough of raising tickets at work? I do.

The problem immediately goes away as soon as people start using release
branches responsibly.
