Can I squash _other peoples_ git commits in a submitted PR?

I have received a PR and wish to squash the commits so it’s nice. I’m not sure if I can do it or the respective authors have to do it? Of course, I wish to keep the author’s name referencing their squash commit. NOTE: this question is not about me squashing my own commits. Here’s […]

should minified files be committed into source control?

I come from a C# background and have moved into Javascript development. In the C# world, I would never consider committing an executable (.DLL, .EXE) into source control because you cannot verify that the executable matches the code.

Is there a way to combine git commands atomically (not through shell)?

Say, I want to do this: git checkout featureBranch git rebase master If I want to combine the two “shell” commands I can do: git checkout featureBranch && git rebase master However, that is not atomic.
