When will `git pull --rebase` get me in to trouble?
I understand that when I use
git pull --rebase, git will re-write history and move my local commits to occur after all of the commits in the branch I just pulled from.
What I don't understand is how this would ever be a bad thing. People talk about getting in to trouble with
git pull --rebase where you can end up with a branch that other people can't pull from. But I don't get how that's possible since all you're doing is replaying your local, not-yet-public, commits on top of the branch you pulled from. So, what's the problem there?
I know this has been asked a lot, but I have not really seen a good answer. Here is what I am looking for. We do pull-requests in Stash. We want the history to show one commit per feature (stash merg
