Why are people so obsessed with linear Git history graphs, to the point that they invent CI checks which mandate that every merge request must be opened, then inevitably fail CI because the commit messages don't have a MR URL in them, then amended and force-pushed now that you have the MR? It boggles the mind.

@wjt Stockholm syndrome. The "the commit message must have a link to an issue" is also a great way to discourage quick fixes, and increase the load on maintainers. Far be it from me to kinkshame, but apparently some people enjoy the pain.
