    Better bash autocompletion and colors sound good, maybe it can make Git more user-friendly.
    Does the new merge back-end for Git rebase make things easier and more user friendly?

    Usability and user-friendliness improvements to Git! ❤️

    I would love to see gitg (a GTK client) get some more love, and that GitHub (well Microsoft) would officially support GitHub for Desktop on Linux.

      The motivation for the rebase backend chamge is at https://lore.kernel.org/git/[email protected]/ :

      am-backend drops information and thus limits what it can do. This manifests in different ways:

      * lack of tree information that would allow us to warn users that new files
      in old directories might want to move along with the other files that
      were renamed with those directories[1]
      * incorrect application of patches in the presence of non-unique context
      lines[2], which could be avoided with access to the original files
      involved.
      * less information available to annotate conflict markers (since am creates
      fake ancestors and commits on top of them, and doesn't have access to the
      original commits)
