To clarify the check pipeline changes are merged into their target
branches before testing and the gate pipeline changes are merged into
the forward looking state of the world that Zuul generates as part of
gate testing. This means you do not need to rebase and create new
patchsets to get updated test results, just recheck.

You should only need to rebase and create a new patchset if a merge
conflict exists.
