rebase: try not to munge commit log message
This makes rebase/am keep the original commit log message better, even when it does not conform to "single line paragraph to say what it does, then explain and defend why it is a good change in later paragraphs" convention. This change is a two-edged sword. While the earlier behaviour would make such commit log messages more friendly to readers who expect to get the birds-eye view with oneline summary formats, users who primarily use git as a way to interact with foreign SCM systems would not care much about the convenience of oneline git log tools, but care more about preserving their own convention. This changes their commits less useful to readers who read them with git tools while keeping them more consistent with the foreign SCM systems they interact with. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
