I apologize for the noise then. It was not obvious such a discussion had 
been had.

In the past, I've found that in cases like these it's useful to have a 
pointer to the PR where the review process happened. If not for anything 
else, at least to allow the community around a project to have a sense 
of transparency. Not everyone follows development, but everyone likes to 
know where things are coming from when major milestones are reached.

Call me biased, but I believe this should not require a rule to be 
enforced - it should be common sense. Squashing makes reading the 
history easier, and allows you to review individual patches. If people 
don't squash, you're forced to review the whole diff.

Besides, not squashing patches like the one I mentioned leads to 
git-bisect being completely useless, because some of the patches won't 
even compile/run/wtv.
