Yes. I agree. And I usually also use rebase as the policy for pull (git pull
--rebase). This gets rid of all the unnecessary merge commit messages.   But
it is always important to remember to never rebase commits which have been
pushed up before (by oneself or someone else). You imply that by writing
"local commit history" but I thought it is important to mention when
recommending rebase. Using rebase on published (pushed) commits makes it
very difficult for everyone.
