Subject Re: Squashing, Git, PRs, and Maybe Other Processes

Fair enough indeed. It would be good if someone from infra or a mentor
could tell us if PR merges work well enough from the Github side, unless
you all have already been merging by clicking merge on them there, or if
those merges have to be done through the ASF repositories and locally.
Since I am working on the static site, I have not looked at the other PRs
and repositories to see, but it would be great if we are able to use a flow
driven from the PRs directly through GH IMO.

Thanks much,

I only like squashing because I'm merging single commits and I don't
want another 'merge' commit.

Sure, if a feature is implemented and it has 20 commits, it does have
some importance to preserve those since, if they are well made, there
is some logical progression there that you will need for future

Other than this aspect, I think we are doing fine. Our changes so far
are minor. Once we start contributing fixes and features and alter
things deeper then we have to think about how to thread on thin ice
more efficiently.
