That's great! I'm glad to hear that there are more and more supporters for

To make this magic commit we'll have to backtrack HEAD to the latest commit
in master, then load tree from the latest commit in the feature branch to
index and then do the commit. To do this properly without hurting worktree,
messing index and losing HEAD I think it'd be safer to create a very small
clone. As a bonus you won't have to stash your local changes or current
index to run 'git review'.


Kind regards, Yuriy.
